  1. saw him as a teen when we first got the Bucks franchise. As an impoverished white kid, I thought what he and others stood for was good for me, too and I so loved him, Kareem, and Ali. Right with Barbara Jordan and Shirley Chisholm

    1. You were so lucky. I’m jealous. He played before my time, but I would have loved to have met him, and watch him play. πŸ™

    2. Another impoverished kid here. Didn’t follow basketball, but thanks for recalling Ali, who I did follow, and Barbara Jordan, whose speech on the imepachment of Nixon committee still brings me to tears.

  2. Disregarding the “trollers” in the earlier comments (just tacky): So sorry for our collective loss, and condolences for his family and all sports & civil rights followers.

  3. All Of Our Legends, Are LEAVING!!!!!!!!! And Somehow, We Are MADE Less, From THEIR PASSING! I’VE ALWAYS FELT THAT WAY!!!!!!!!!!

    1. @Veganpotter Thevegan Yes! But What Has Gone Before, Will Always Maintain It’s VALUE!!!!!!!!!! THAT IS WHY, WE MISS PEOPLE AND THINGS!!!!!!!!! FOR WHAT THEY MEAN TO US, AS INDIVIDUALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. @Frank Wilson yeah, and the same will be said about future figures that aren’t even born yet.

    3. @Veganpotter Thevegan My Point, Exactly! It’ll One Day, Even Be Said Of Us!!!!!!!!! I Wouldn’t Mind, Being Remembered!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Thank you, Mr. Moore. Mr. Russell was a ahead of his time – NBA GOAT in the 60’s and simultaneously a CIVIL RIGHTS HERO.

    1. I hated Bill Russel when he played basketball because I was a 76er fan. After he retired he became one of my favorite people. He was also great as a commentator for NBA games. He would always laugh at his own jokes which would crack me up.

  5. 2 NCAA championships at a school most people have never heard of. 55 straight wins there. Olympic Gold Medal. 11 world championships in 13 seasons. A civil rights pioneer. There will be nobody that will approach accomplishing all those things again. He was Special! RIP Russ.

  6. What a remarkable man. Strength ,grace and class in one package. A life well lived. RIP Mr. Russell

  7. Life is a constant reminder that all great things must come to an end. May the legend finally rest in peace.

  8. Bill Russell was a true legend of the sport and as a man. RIP Bill may we have more people like you in the world that stand for integrity and justice.

  9. Bless his heart! Bill Russell…THANK YOU for making the World just a little bit better, on and off the court! RIP
