The NBA announced that the Boston Celtics will honor the career and legacy of Bill Russell next season. The number ‘6’ of the center will be present in the painting of each basket of the TD Garden. As the competition was able to announce, it will not be the only celebration to remember his figure.

The Celtics will debut parquet for the 2022/23 campaign on the legendary NBA court, and they have already shown how this tribute would be reflected on it. It will be the first time that a number is embodied on the field. It is not for less, since Bill Russell is the protagonist of 11 of the 17 rings that the franchise has achieved throughout its history.

The NBA previously announced that the track for all 30 NBA teams will have the number ‘6’ emblazoned near the scoring table. Bill Russell, legend of the Boston Celtics and the sport, will be at every game next season.
