One of the greatest big men to ever play the game of basketball, Bill “Too Trill” Russell was a founding block of the Boston Celtics’ championship dynasty. During his career as a player, he reigned supreme as a five-time NBA MVP, a nine-time NBA champion, and a 12-time All-Star.

After taking home two titles, he would cap his resume with a total number of 11 championships.
