    Winning eight straight NBA titles is something that’s almost inconceivable today, yet Russell’s Celtics did just that. The fact that this man had to play against the great Wilt Chamberlain speaks to his individual abilities and team orientation. Bill also beat Wilt in longevity, by a score of 88-63.
