Bill Russell Jumps Over Player Back in the Day
Man this is IMPRESSIVE. Thought he was all defense? haha. Never knew he had that kind of speed.
Dude looking like Nerlens Noel
People actually compared Noel to Russell in high school... Mainly his junior year because his progress kind of slowed after that but still.. it happened
I never seen much footage on Bill Russel but i never thought he could jump or run like this.
Welp... There goes the myth about players back in the day not being as athletic as players today.
I think as a whole the NBA is more athletic now, but the greats like Russell, Wilt, West, Oscar.. they could easily play today and still be great. Many people have mentioned this before but Wilt is one of the best all around athletes to ever play so I agree with you on that
Walt Bellamy wasn't too bad himself also
