Bill Russell Was the Best Player in NBA History
The answer to this question is simple. Bill Russell is the best player to ever play in the NBA. Why?
Because he has the most championships by any player(11). He was on a team that won eight in a row. I think the best is defined as winning, and nobody won more Championships then Russell.
I know Jordan, Chamberlain, and Johnson might have done more with the individual awards, but when it is all said and done name one player who won more championships then Russell.
