Basketball legend Bill Russell (88), who won 11 NBA titles, has died.

Russell has won more NBA titles than any player in history

All eleven were with the Boston Celtics

He was a black athlete who spoke out against racial injustice when it was not as common as it is today.

Russell blossomed late in the basket ball court but ended up revolutionizing the game.

By 1963, in this NBA Finals game, Russell was a shot-blocking threat that represented a major change in the game.

Russell was also a track and field high jumper, and it seemed perfectly reasonable to try to lift in basketball as well.

Russell led San Francisco to NCAA titles in 1955 and 1956. He also led the US to an Olympic gold medal in '56.

There are Bob Cousy, Tom Heinsohn, Sam Jones, K.C. Jones and many other great players. But no one is like Russell.

Russell was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama at the White House in February 2011.

Russell's life was long - at times profound and at times chaotic

Through it all, Russell had one constant: laughter
