NBA Legend Bill Russell Dies at 88

Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell, who won 11 championships in 13 seasons with the team, has died, his family announced Sunday. He was 88.

His family posted a message celebrating the life of one of the NBA's greatest-ever players.

"Bill's wife, Jeannine, and his many friends and family thank you for keeping Bill in your prayers. Perhaps you'll relive one or two of the golden moments he gave us, or recall his trademark laugh as he delighted in explaining the real story behind how those moments unfolded," they said. ... d/2794644/

He was awesome. I read every word in Sports Illustrated about him back in the day.

I kept one of his cover issues for a while but apparently lost it in a move. I'm tempted to spring for the $25 and get it again.
