Basketball Lover Quickie: Bill Russell Statue Unveiled (pic)

Just caught this pic on Twitter.  Bill Russell statue being unveiled at Boston City Hall Plaza.  If any athlete deserves homage, this is the dude.

Celtic loving on a Knicks blog? If I gotta explain this one, you don't know much about basketball and what brings out the best in competition.  Great competition.  Nor do you know much about basketball and performing at a high level despite extremely adverse racial conditions.  Thank you Bill Russell.
