NBA Finals Award to be Named After Bill Russell

NBA commissioner David Stern announced Saturday that the award for the Finals MVP will be named after Celtics legend Bill Russell.

Russell never won the award himself (the award was created late in Russell’s career in 1969), but was a 5-time NBA MVP. He won 11 World Titles with the Celtics as a player and coach.

“This is one of my proudest moments in basketball, because I determined early in my career, the only important statistic in basketball is the final score,” Russell said.
