Bill Russell is the greatest champion there is.
Russell, the defensive anchor and star of the 1960s Boston Celtics dynasty, passed away on Sunday at the age of 88.
During his career, he won 11 NBA championships, two NCAA crowns, and an Olympic gold medal.
Here is a look at the stats that led to Russell's induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame
Russell was selected by the Celtics in the 1956 NBA Draft out of San Francisco,
and they went on to form a dynasty around the rangy center that dominated the game until his retirement in 1969.
Russell once remarked, "Success is the consequence of consistently using successful techniques and strategies.
"The procedure is not extraordinary in any way. There is no element of chance."
For the 1959–60 NBA season, Wilt Chamberlain made his debut, and he and Bill Russell launched their legendary 10-year rivalry.
