Happy Birthday, Mr. Russell

Posted on: February 15, 2009 10:11 pm

PHOENIX -- Bill Russell became a deserving focal point of All-Star weekend Saturday, when the NBA named the Finals MVP Award after him.

On Sunday, Russell's 75th birthday was recognized during the All-Star Game.

Does it get any cooler than the Celtics' Big Three -- Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen -- wheeling a cardboard birthday cake over to his courtside seat during a timeout?

No, it doesn't.

Happy 75th birthday, Bill.
