In High School he won 3 state championships

In college he won back to back NCAA championships

In the NBA his Celtics won 8 NBA championships in a row and a total of 11 in his 13 year career.

To the pundits who have said time and time again that nobody had a stronger will to win than Michael Jordan. I say to you nobody had a stronger will to win than Bill Russell. He was the leader of the Boston Celtics Dynasty as a player and later a player coach. The greatest defensive player in the history of the NBA. The only player who consistantly blocked shots and kept them in play for a possessions that most of the time lead to fast break points. Russell average 15.1 ppg, 22 rpg, and would have averaged double figures in blocks if they had kept a record of that stat in that era. For all you former players who never saw Bill Russell play in the NBA I'm here to tell you his will to win and his championships are second to none on all levels. Russell won a total of 16 championships during his overall basketball career and to win that many you had to have a good coach, teammates, and a strong will to win. Stronger than Kareem, Mikan, Magic, and Michael Jordan. Bill Russell had no equal when it comes to his will to win he had no equal then or now. It is Russell who is the greatest winner ever setting an NBA record of 8 NBA titles in a row and that record just like his will to win will never be broken!
