Bill Russell Rumors

The Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP Award went to Kevin Durant, but Quip of the Night goes to Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr. During the trophy presentation, when asked about incorporating the brilliant Durant into his already-talented roster this season, Kerr replied, “Well, we had very little talent actually. It was all coaching.”
Jazz coach Quin Snyder likes the Russell-Gobert comparison, especially in light of how crucial Russell was to his team’s success on the defensive end. “I think it’s a great comparison,” Snyder said. “I grew up watching Bill Russell when he was in Seattle even after Boston. I admire him on many levels. I’d like Rudy to continue to grow into the man that Bill Russell is too.”
