Bill Russell Has Made Important NBA History
The NBA lost a great legend when Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics passed away.
In his 13 years in the NBA, he won 11 championship rings, which is a feat that no one else has topped since then.
It has been decided that Russell’s number, 6, will be retired throughout the league.
In future, no new players will wear his number so as to respect his legacy.
This is a decision made for the first time in the history of NBA.
