One of the best centers in NBA history. Playing for the Boston Celtics
, Russell helped mold them into basketball's greatest dynasty, winning 11 NBA championships (including 9 straight at one point). His battles with Wilt Chamberlain
were legendary, and Russell's Celtics almost always came out on top. Russell is regarded as perhaps the greatest rebounder and defensive player in the history of basketball. After retiring as a player, he moved into coaching and also worked as a television commentator.
Wilt scored on many players -- and ladies -- during his prime, but Bill Russell was not among them. If only those 20,000 women could "front the post" like Russell did!
