[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Fans : Sir, you are so lucky to have that meeting with Bill Russell. Glad he shook your hand and made a positive impression with you. I'd love to meet Russell and have a conversation, he'd be amazing to talk with. Not only from a Basketball perspective but from a life persepective. The man's book, 'Rebound' is the best sports autobiography I've ever read. He's just a one of a kind.

You know Russell was a pretty gracious guy from what I recall. Shortly after his retirement he hosted a sports talk radio show in LA!! on KABC I believe. It was on mid afternoon so I was able to catch his show most days when I got home from school. I don't think he was on for that long but it was definitely a treat to hear him tell his stories on the radio. Wonder if any recordings exist of those?
