Bill Russell is the winningest NBA player in terms of championship rings with 11, but the legendary center is not even No. 1 in Celtic history if we factor in winning percentage. With an impressive 660-237 record (73.58 percentage of wins), Larry Bird is ahead of the five-time MVP. Of the Top 60 players on ESPN’s greatest ever list, only one beats Bird. That would be his 80’s arch-nemesis Magic Johnson, owner of a 73.95 percent winning record.
There’s just two active players in the Top 12, both ahead of Russell and both Spurs: Tony Parker and Tim Duncan.
