11th Time’s the Charm
Date: November 27, 1996
No one has won more as a professional athlete than Bill Russell. With 11 NBA World Championship titles in his 13-year career, Russell set an impossibly high bar for anyone to match. Said Russell about his career, “I’d set a standard to win and that didn’t change.” And he had the rings to prove it.
