Tonight at 9pm EST, NBATV will air “Mr. Russell’s House”, a one-hour special that chronicle’s Russell’s life and career with the Boston Celtics:
NBA legend Bill Russell chats with Bill Simmons about growing up and playing for the Celtics during the Civil Rights era. Also covered are Russell’s battles with Wilt Chamberlain, and President Obama honoring him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Here’s an excerpt from the special, and you can catch it in it’s entirety at 9pm EST tonight on NBATV. Russell also had a great sit down with C-Webb this past weekend. It’s worth a look if you missed it.
