Bill Russell to Lebron James: “Basketball is not about the individual”

Bill-Russell-3

After Lebron left Mr. Russell off of his ‘NBA Mount Rushmore,’  Russell issued this statement:

“Thank you for leaving me off your Mount Rushmore. Im glad you did. Basketball is a team game. Its not for individual honors. I won back-to-back state championships in highschool. Back-to-back NCAA championships in college. I won an NBA championship my first year in the league. An NBA championship my last year. 9 in between. And that, Mr. James, is etched in stone.”
