Eleven-time NBA champion Bill Russell was dissatisfied with President Donald Trump’s remarks about the protesters who knelt down and united against the black life.

Russell is not just the most prolific champion in NBA history. In 1966, he was named the first black coach in league history.
Few American athletes are more qualified to express their opinions on the social problems that plague the United States.
“YesOU [President Trump] Split and timid. Russell continued: “It takes real courage 2 position 4, correct approach and risk of life in a pandemic,”
This is not the first time Russell has opposed President Trump.
Just a few weeks ago, Russell condemned Trump’s idea of mailing ballots.
If there is one thing that is clear enough, it is that Bill Russell is the voice that the world should listen to in all the chaos.
