Bill Russell

After the unveiling of his statue today, Celtics legend Bill Russell probably didn’t think his day could get any better…well, it just did as he was in the house for Boston/Milwaukee game and got a standing ovation.

During a stoppage of play, the Celtics public address announcer noted that Bill was in the building and he got a rousing bit of applause:
