Bill Russell to LeBron James, via Craig Sager:
Hey, thank you for leaving me off your Mount Rushmore. I’m glad you did. Basketball is a team game. It’s not for individual honors.
I won back-to-back State Championships in high school, back-to-back NCAA Championships in college. I won an NBA Championship my first year in the league, an NBA Championship my last year, and nine in between.
And that, Mr. James, is etched in stone.
