yeah its from 57 years ago

but at the end of the day its a running layup

the only thing i really take from this vid is that russel had hops. . .but again, for a guy that size is it really that impressive that he can jump?

yall n*ggas hyping up old n*ggas just cause they old. . .just lets me know that none of these n*ggas could play in todays game

didn't know bill had it like that. i knew he was a really great athlete but 6'10" and can run and jump like that is impressive in any era of basketball.

How many guys his size were doing that at that time?

who knows? Theres not a whole lot of footage from back then. . .

But i do know that your average sf today can do it. I gives a fu*k if he was the only guy in a league that was half white dumpy guys that could do it

its just a running layup

Or we respect people's accomplishments within their era. You can't make a direct comparison either way. You have to compare them against their era, then try to compare their dominance against other dominant athletes. Regardless of when it was, AGAINST HIS ERA, Bill Russell was light years ahead of his counterparts. And even more importantly, his GAME translates to any era. Regardless of athleticism, his defending & rebounding would be applicable in today's game. As well as his acumen. The top tier athletes almost always translate to any era. Plus, in Bill Russell's case, he had Wilt to compete against directly. Essentially Shaq w/more athleticism. 7'1" 275lbs. Big Eight track champion 3 straight yrs. So in this case, n*ggas are just being contrary for the sake of it.

Wilt destroyed Russell. Unfortunately for Wilt his team wasn't full of hall of famers. And if not for a racist owner Bill would of played in St. Louie and the talent on the C's would of been a little more spread out.
