President Barack Obama presents NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Such a great photo. It’s good to see Bill Russell continuing to see just how much people respect and appreciate him. A true class act.
I wonder who’s the next generation of greatness will be now that the Kobe Bryant/Kevin Garnett/Ray Allen class is close to retirement. Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose, for sure. John Wall if his team can start winning.
Congratulations, Bill Russell, and thanks for setting such a high standard for professional basketball, making winning the only option. Thanks, Big Guy!
