It is going to be tough even for Trump to fall back on his normal tropes, over rated (if anything he is underrated), loser (11 time champ), low energy (still playing even when he became the teams coach).

Dotard couldn't even impugn the credentials of THIS Bill Russell.

Freakishly talented guy.  Solid citizen.  Could kick Trump's ass in any game from tiddlywinks to Brockian Ultra Cricket.

Let's put the two of them in a ten foot circle and see what happens.

In the picture, Russell wears the Presidential Medal Freedom, which President Obama awarded him in 2010.

And frowning.

I met him when he was the coach of the SuperSonics, a funny man with a great sense of humor.

Sorry, but this is not news. Find me a couple of highly accomplished black people that love Trump. Now that would be news.

Terrible coach, bad influence on the kids, gave them drugs, got a high school girl pregnant, always claimed people didn't approve because he's black...

Well he said mean things to Trump so that would mean bullying. That drives the Trump mind down to the word thug for some specific reason. Mind you, his mind wouldn't get there had Bill Walton said it though.

Trump couldn't drag the Bill Russell of today up and down the floor for 30 seconds, much less a whole game.

Adjusting for generational differences Russell is BY BAR the greatest bballer in history.

Trump is no Roger Murdock that's for sure.

I remember walking to a Celtics game maybe 10-15 years ago. I'm waiting to cross a street and notice an enormous man standing to my left, so tall that he's blocking the mid afternoon sun but he's backlit so I can't see his face. After crossing I look over my shoulder and notice it was Bill freaking Russell. For that brief moment, I was literally standing in the shadow of greatness.

He won't try that hard, except during the playoffs.
