Unreal footage of Bill Russell was released on Youtube this week that shows him leaping from the free throw line en route to a layup. And oh ya, he jumps over a guy in doing so.
Anyone that thinks Bill Russell isn't one of the best players of all-time; let this video be a fresh reminder just how outstanding he was. Russell literally changed how the game was played.
The video lists Russell's measurements back then:
6-9 5/8ths w/o shoes (Sports Illustrated 1956)
215-240lb playing weight range
