On a side note, I've never really agreed with the "Bill Russell is GOAT candidate" argument. He had great, but not GOAT-level, stats. Wilt got the better of the two every time they played. He was the best player on a team that won an absurb number of rings, but not GOAT. Regardless of rings, I would choose Wilt, KAJ, Hakeem, and probably Shaq, before Russell, if were starting a team. Having said that, I have as much respect for him as a player, as I do any other player ever. His teams dominated for over a decade.
