Bill Russell Is Bad (Even In The Sexy Sixties)

Hey ya'll.

Everyone, and with good reason, likes to talk about the revolution Michael Jordan brought to basketball. One of Jordan's most memorable feats, was leaving his feets at the foul line and completing a slam dunk during one of the first slam dunk contests at an NBA all-star game. In the clip you're about to watch, Bill Russell does something that was unheard of, at the time. You don't really need to know the year. You can see from the quality of the video, which was taped the film of the actual event that it was a long time ago. So, by those standards, this Russell replay was to Jordan what the guy who invented the first jump shot is to the modern game of basketball.
