Watch Bill Russell leap over a defender and score [Video]

February 26, 2013|By Chuck Schilken

Bill Russell ... what more can be said about a basketball legend?

Apparently plenty, thanks to a newly resurfaced video that is making the rounds on the Internet.

In it, Russell goes coast to coast for a seemingly easy bucket for the University of San Francisco.

Did I mention that Russell leaps over a defender's head and then lays the ball in the basket?

Check out the video above, which was first posted on the Red's Army blog.

Pretty incredible stuff ... even for a future Celtic.
