More of a local Boston story than national, but Bill Russell is one of the oldest living legends we have left, so:
The AP reports:
Boston Mayor Tom Menino says that City Hall Plaza has been chosen as the site for a proposed statue of Celtics basketball legend Bill Russell.
Menino made the announcement Monday with the Bill Russell Legacy Committee and the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation. They said the site was chosen because of its location near the “Freedom Trail.”
