We continue our #RussellMania series, a deep dive into the life and career of Bill Russell and the Boston Celtics dynasty, with a discussion of the Celtics’ playoff battles with the New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons in the late 1960s.

Jason Mann and Rich Kraetsch talk about the Celtics adjusted to old age, how the Knicks rebuilt after nearly a decade of struggles, how the overlooked Pistons found success with Dave Bing, and John Havlicek becoming the Celtics’ best player. They also discuss Willis Reed, Bill Bradley, Em Bryant, Bailey Howell, Walt Bellamy, Dave DeBusschere and more.
