Celtic legend Bill Russell turns 80 years old today.
LeBron James may not have had him on his Mt. Rushmore, but Russell deserves his spot more than anyone.
With 11 championships to his name, Russell holds the honor of most trophies won by a player. He led the Celtics to those 11 titles in the 50s and 60s, which included eight straight NBA championships.
He was recently honored in Boston with a statue by City Hall, a well deserved honor.
