The Best of Bill Russell's Unveiling Speech

New, comments

When Bill Russell speaks, you shut up and listen. So shut up and listen to some incredible stories from the legend himself.

On a monumental day of speeches and tributes from some of the greatest legends in the NBA and African-American community, Bill Russell stole the show with a riveting and breathtaking half-hour speech. Since you don't have a half hour, we boiled it down to eight minutes of one of the greatest Americans ever.

CLNS Radio's Jared Weiss then spoke to Celtics legend Bill Walton about his friendship with Russell and having breakfast with Russell Friday morning.

Filmed and produced by Kyle George for CLNS Radio.
