NBA Lockout Day 71
ESPN Classic's Vintage NBA series now seems to be running on NBA TV. I'll probably be posting more of these in the coming weeks. Here's probably their best player focus, Bill Russell. I don't need to go over this Boston Celtic's history and prestige. Some superb footage from his relationship with Red Auerbach, to his dealings with racism, and his battles with Wilt Chamberlain.
There's also a lot of Alonzo Mourning in it since he was winning Defensive Player of the Year awards at this time (yes this series is old).
