“I do just want to point out that for some of those championships, there were like eight teams in the entire NBA,” Redick said. “Some of those championships he only had to win two rounds in the playoffs.”

Bosh added his two cents on Bill Russell’s competition.

“And, you know, you’re playing against firefighters,” Bosh responded. “You know, dudes had jobs in the summertime. Dude’s going to be a lifeguard, go work on construction after the NBA season. They had part-time jobs, they went [during] summertime and got a job, bro.”

Bill Russell was an 11-time NBA Champion, 12-time All-Star, 5-time MVP and an 11-time All-NBA player.
