<< The yin to Russell's yang. I bet Russ has a large empty spot inside
Around the time of Russell's tribute this spring he was a guest of radio
personality Don Imus and was discussing Wilt's amazing abilities - including
a 55 rebound game. ln regard to that game Russell cackled "...and l was on
the court watching him".
Even tho Wilt was always the enemy, having him as an obstacle put an extra
stamp of greatness on both Russell and the Celtic teams. Wilt was everything
that Shaq should be but won't be. He was Superman while Russ was more like
Batman, getting the job done without the superhuman powers. For those of us
who lived through what was the greatest head-to-head rivalry in professional
sports, a legend has passed on.
