I agree that it is rather meaningless now that Bill Russell is dead.

I also think retiring his jersey for all teams is total overkill. What about retiring 23 for the GOAT? And many in the 60s thought Wilt was a better player than Russell.

After someone dies, the media makes then a god. As much as I admire and respect Bill Russell, and I really do, I think this is very much an over reach.
