Default Re: Bill Russell vs Willis Reed in 1969

I don't think many people realize how hard it is to be both a star player and coach of a title contender at the same time. This was an impressive not just playing but coaching display as well. And in reference to the '70 Celtics their moves were made in mind with Russell returning such as drafting Jojo White instead of a center. With Bill Russell at the helm and not adjusting to a new coach/system they would have been contenders again.
