Celtics legend and 11-time NBA champion Bill Russell was honored with a statue at City Hall Plaza in Boston on Friday during a private unveiling ceremony.
This sort of moment was long overdue, but it’s great to have a statue of Russell in Boston so current and future generations of sports fans can learn about his extraordinary basketball career and the amazing charitable work he’s done.
Check out the unveiling of the statue and some comments from Russell in the video above.
