LeBron James Won His Second Ring, Bill Russell Was Not Impressed (GIF)
Obviously Game 7 of the NBA Finals between the Spurs and Heat wasn’t as exciting as Game 6, which was an all-time classic. However, it was still a pretty good contest. The score was close until the very end, and if just a few things had gone differently—if Tim Duncan had made that hook shot, or if LeBron James had actually missed a shot, or if Manu Ginobili didn’t throw that pass to nobody—it could have been even closer. So most people in attendance at the American Airlines Arena got their money’s worth.
Unfortunately, it takes a lot more than a “pretty good” game to impress a guy who has won 11 NBA Championships and has the NBA Finals MVP Award named after him.
I am talking, of course, about Bill Russell. He was there last night to see the Miami Heat win their second consecutive title and, well, it seems the game went a little past his bedtime:
Oh, you won your second ring, LeBron? That’s cool. I’m gonna go home and take a nap now. Wake me up when you’re at eight or nine, and we’ll talk.
Bill Russell is the best.
