The National Basketball Association (NBA) and National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) announced today that they will honor the life and legacy of 11-time NBA champion and civil rights pioneer Bill Russell by permanently retiring his uniform number, 6, throughout the league. The iconic Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer will be the first player to have his number retired across the NBA.
â€śBill Russellâ€™s unparalleled success on the court and pioneering civil rights activism deserve to be honored in a unique and historic way,â€ť said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. â€śPermanently retiring his No. 6 across every NBA team ensures that Billâ€™s transcendent career will always be recognized.â€ť
In addition to retiring Russellâ€™s number, the NBA will pay tribute to the Boston Celticsâ€™ legend throughout the 2022-23 season. All NBA players will wear a commemorative patch on the right shoulder of their jerseys, and every NBA court will display a clover-shaped logo with the No. 6 on the sideline near the scorerâ€™s table. The Celtics, for whom Russell played his entire career and coached, will have a separate and unique recognition for him on their uniforms, to be announced soon. Russellâ€™s jersey number, which he wore for his entire 13-season career from 1956-69, will not be issued again by any NBA team to any player. Players who currently wear No. 6 will be grandfathered.
