Bill Russell- The Celtics indomitable centre
Bill Russell played for the Boston Celtics for thirteen seasons and is featured here in their green uniform. His rivalry with fellow foward Wilt Chamberlain will be remembered as one of the greatest and most exciting duels in the NBA.
His figure is probably one of the most unique that McFarlanes have produced as it features his signature rebounding technique whereby he would kick the foot nearest an opponent high in the air.
This rather unusual techniques was devised because he was fed up of being hacked at pulled at when he pulled down rebounds and this technique was usually enough persuasion for any opponent to leave him alone.
