Bill Russell

I actually casually met Bill Russell several times. This was long after his playing days, and many years after his last coaching job, but he played a lot of golf on public courses in my area. He always used a cart and zipped around the course playing with his friends, and you could hear his cackling laugh just like when he commentated on TV from many yards away before you could see him. He certainly seemed to be enjoying his retirement.

I was a huge Laker fan when he was playing. Greatest who ever played and my bad luck to have to root against him.
