BILL RUSSELL: LEGEND | Official Trailer | Netflix 🤍🤍youtube.com/🤍Netflix The remarkable life and legacy of an NBA superstar and civil rights icon is captured in the documentary Bill Russell: Legend. This two-part film from award-winning director Sam Pollard (MLK/FBI, Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power) features the last interview with Bill prior to his passing in 2022 as well as access to his sprawling personal archives. On the court, Russell went on to lead each and every one of his basketball teams to championships — two back-to-back NCAA titles, a gold medal at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, and 11 championship titles in his thirteen-year career as a Boston Celtic (his last two as the first Black head coach in NBA history). Off the court Russell was a force in the fight for human rights — marching with Martin Luther King Jr., leading boycotts in the NBA over racist practices and speaking out against segregation — efforts which earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Narrated by actors Jeffrey Wright and Corey Stoll and featuring exclusive interviews with the icon’s family and friends as well as Steph Curry, Chris Paul, “Magic” Johnson, Larry Bird, Jim Brown and more, Bill Russell: Legend illuminates the ways in which Russell stood tall in every sense of the word.
Athletes of that era had a great political stance! That’s what made them great! Athletes today only care about money & stats.
This documentary is, in my humble opinion, way too much oriented towards racism.
Is this a history or sports documentary?
Too bad it's not more basketball focused, mr.Russell deserved that for sure, as his contribution to basketball is beyond imaginable.
Appologies for my bad english, one more thing just to be clear, and whitout any doubts - no matter what - the goat is MJ.
Mr. Russell retired the year my mom was born, and I'm still convinced there is no one greater than him. A winner in all aspects, an elite human being, rest easy Mr. Russell
Thank for the documentary. Bill the legend, the man, the leader, the champion. Try hard to not to drop a tear.
James brown payback
