Bill Russell accepts Hall of Fame ring more than 40 years after being inducted

The 11-time champion Celtic, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1975, finally accepted his Hall ring. Russell, now 85 years old, shared photos of himself along with his family and Ann Meyers, Bill Walton, Alonzo Mourning accepting the ring 44 years after he was initially inducted.

The five-time MVP also explained why he declined to accept the ring in ’75, along with the photos — he didn’t want to be the first black player to be inducted into the Hall and said Charles “Chuck” Cooper should have had the honor of being first, instead. “I felt others before me should have that honor,” Russell wrote.


Cooper, the first black player to be drafted into the NBA (Celtics, 1950), was posthumously inducted this past September. Cooper died of cancer in 1984. Russell was among the 10 other legends who helped bestow the award. The other nine were Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elgin Baylor, Larry Bird, Julius Erving, Isiah Thomas, Dominque Wilkins, Tom Heinsohn, Ray Allen and Harlem Globetrotters CEO Mannie Jackson.
