The NBA has lost one of its biggest stars Bill Russel, the legend of the Boston Celtics. He played in the NBA for 13 years and won 11 championship rings. Although it was a very short career compared to some of the current stars, it was certainly a very illustrative career. He won more championships than any other NBA star and nearly set a 100 percent championship record in his career. More importantly, he has stood by his team for all of those 13 seasons, even playing dual roles as coach and player for the last 2 seasons. NBA Analyst Rob Parker praised his commitment the Celts Franchise.

News anchors and NBA analysts Rob Parker and Chris Broussard recently spoke about the NBA legend and everything he’s been through during his career. Parker spoke about the Celtics legends playing in front of the fans who hated him. He said, “I don’t think Chris, I could have played in Boston for people who hated me, who didn’t respect me, who made me feel unwelcome and unwanted.”

Amazed by the engagement, Parker added: “…And I wear Boston over my jersey, I win for their emotions, make them feel good. And I’m sure he won, but – you know what I mean? – it made the city and the people who lived there feel good. I don’t think I could have done that. I admire him.”

Bill Russell faced a lot of racism while still maintaining his loyalty to the team

Russell was drafted by the Boston Celtics in 1956 and spent his entire career in the city. He was their most decorated player in terms of championships won for them. He delivered 11 NBA titles, and that’s just in 13 seasons. However, the 6-foot-10 man was not appreciated by some Celtics fans despite winning all those titles. One thing fans didn’t like about Russell was his race.

Bill Russell was set in a town where some people hated him. Some people would even break into his house and steal his trophies. The event was clearly very disheartening for a player who gave his 100% for the team and the franchise. But Russell was a competitor and a fantastic player.

The Louisiana-born megastar continued to play incredible basketball despite all the hate. However, the icon didn’t care about the fans. He wanted to win and do his best for the franchise he plays for. Many players would have asked for a trade the moment they were in his situation; However, Russell’s dedication was second to none.

Rob Parker used Bill Russell’s example to ruin the current Kevin Durant situation.

Bill Russell couldn’t avoid racism despite being a great player who made the Celtics a dynasty. Without him, Boston’s NBA team would not have become the most successful team in league history. But that doesn’t apply to many current megastars. Rob Parker compared Bill Russell to Kevin Durant’s current situation. He applied for a trade back in June 2022. The sports host spoke of Russell staying in Boston for more than a decade, but Durant couldn’t handle a few bad years.

Parker said “He didn’t play there for a year or two and said, ‘Okay, I can’t do this. I have to get out of town.’ So when you hear Kevin Durant and some of these other guys ready to run away after something doesn’t go right? Shame on you,”

Celtics fans didn’t like the fact that their team was successful because of a black man. They did everything they could to chase him away, which didn’t work for Russell. But in Durant’s case, fans and the franchise want him to stay, but the player is looking for a scenario change rather than fighting them for the title.
