We conclude our #RussellMania series, a deep dive into the life and career of Bill Russell and the Boston Celtics dynasty, with a discussion of some of our favorite stories of Russell’s life and career and our final thoughts on the project.

Jason Mann and Rich Kraetsch share stories of Russell’s interactions with his teammates, including Frank Ramsey, John Havlicek, Tommy Heinsohn, and Bob Cousy, and talk about Russell and his USF teammates touring Alcatraz, the Jones Boys riling up Wilt Chamberlain, Russell’s early interactions with Red Auerbach, Russell’s reactions to getting a statue in Boston, and what Russell said to a big-time gambler who approached him about fixing an NBA game.
