Bill Russell
I appreciate JJ’s point of view, but encourage him, if he hasn’t already to read Bryant’s piece on Russell. As a black man raised In Oakland whose father attended McClymomdsHS with Bill. I get how powerful Bill Russell was to us. Not only an amazing athlete but a incredible leader and role model well beyond Michael Jordan for me and my family. Also a person who went to school in Boston in 1972 and lived and worked there until 1989, it is hard to describe what it meant to have Bill Russell as an example of how to hold your head up high in the middle of such turmoil. The context in which you work matters. The courage and dignity of people like Russell and others should be explored and understood by JJ. At times JJ has showed great insight into these perspectives. I applaud him for calling out Mad Dog on fans who suggest athletes should just shut up a dribble. I call on him not to diminish athletes from an earlier age, especially Bill Russell. In my mind he is the greatest!!
