Bill Russell Quotes

Photo by Wallace Chuck on

Success is a result of consistent practice of winning skills and actions.  There is nothing miraculous about the process.

The only important statistic is the final score.

Bill Russell played professional basketball for the Boston Celtics in the 1950s and 1960s.  He was the consummate team player, but his leadership helped his teams earn championships in the Olympics, NCAA (twice), and NBA (11 titles).  He became the first African-American coach in NBA history, and as player-coach, he led his beloved Celtics to two more championships.

    • I appreciate your point. However, I think Russell is referring to playing team sports where the most important stat is the team’s score. The success of the team is more important than individual stats.
