Russell is 18th in career win shares - during a time when defensive win shares are suspect in terms of being well overstated.
Bill Russell isn't even in the NBA top 300 for offensive win shares either.
104th in PER.
.561 from the line.....
.440 from the field with no competition in his first 3 years, and not that much thereafter until his final 4 years. He took 90% of his shots inside of 6 feet.
Not top 10. Unless you think titles with a great team/coach/GM and lots of D and rebounding is enough to get him in. He's outside the top 10, and I saw him play, and grew up with the mystique more than all of you.
