The Boston Celtics are not the Boston Celtics without Bill Russell.

He was a great player, a civil rights activist and a guy who changed the NBA and more importantly had a hand in changing the nation.

Wednesday, Feb. 12, is also his 80th birthday. Fans

And just in case you need a reminder of his greatness:

    I’ll take to PBT to wish Russell a happy birthday. Happy Birthday, William Russell!

    He’s been the #2 Russell in Seattle recently, but today he’s #1!
