I’ve been in the same room as Bill Russell on a half-dozen occasions; you could take off points for those rooms being arenas that seated between 12,000–20,000 people. I get extra points given the arenas weren’t full, and once I was within ten feet of him. Russell was known for not signing autographs, and I really didn’t have anything to say to him, so I just let him be.
