He runs the floor many times in games straight off the rebound - these days I would say he was definitely underrated offensively because of his fg% and low volume on a statsheet - it doesn't do his footage justice because he appears to have a nice variety of moves and an almost unmatched ability as a big man to "handle" the ball up the court (again with both hands).
Haven't watched the video yet, but just wanted to say I picked up NBA 2k13 today and promptly added an inch or 2 to all the old school players heights
Idk what the hell they have seen, but they rate Russells speed about a 74 in the 63/4 season and he sprints like a damn turtle...I cant find it anymore but I've seen Russell run scary fast...you don't happen to have that showcased in your highlight of him do you?
