Description

    Bill Russell Photographs Lot of 30. After leading the University of San Francisco to two consecutive NCAA basketball titles in 1955 and 1956 and serving as captain of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics Gold Medal-winning U.S. basketball team; Bill Russell continued his winning ways, capturing his first of 11 NBA titles with the Boston Celtics at the conclusion of his rookie season. Russell was the cornerstone of the Boston Celtics' dynasty of the 1960s, an uncanny shotblocker who revolutionized NBA defensive concepts. A five-time NBA Most Valuable Player and a 12-time All-Star, the towering center amassed 21,620 career rebounds, an average of 22.5 per game and led the league in rebounding four times. A consummate team player, his greatest accomplishment was bringing the storied Celtics 11 championships in his 13 seasons.
    Fantastic collection of images, wire photos and transmissions capturing one of the game's true great players. Images include three with Russell as a member of the University of San Francisco Dons squad with the balance covering his NBA career with the Celtics.
