Awesome vids.

So funny watching everyone play defense tho  ;D ;D ;D

Right? Someone makes one decent pass and a guy is wide open. I noticed that too.

And at no point is there a real offensive set beyond “go post up and see what happens.”

The sophistication we have now on offense and defense even compared to the 1990s, never mind the 1960s, is absurd.

Thanks for these videos. Great footage. I've seen most of it over the years but nice to see again. Russell is underrated at this point. He was truly amazing. Just an incredible athlete and fantastic ballplayer! GOAT!

I'm watching a lot of Bill Russell videos on the youtube channel Wilt Chamberlain Archive and there's some good stuff.

Here's a short one of Russell running fast breaks (underrated ballhalndler for his time):

Here's one of Russell being interviewed on the first day of training camp, his first year as player/coach:

But this is the best quality video I've seen from this era. Russell's highlights from the 1963 NBA Finals (he blocks Jerry West a lot):

TP, these are awesome videos!

Tommy actually manages to get called for a charge in the last video. I didn't even know they had those back then!

Can you imagine Tommy watching those videos and commenting?

It is funny to hear how the NBA game "has been ruined", blah, blah, blah.

Today's product is so much better, in almost every way.
