    Russell is conscious now. Phew!

    @ESPNBoston he was conscious when he left via ambulance. That is all I know at this time. I'll let you know if I hear anything else.

    UPDATE: Bill Russell collapsed while giving a speech in Lake Tahoe. #Celtics tell me he is doing OK and will likely fly out tonight #wcvb

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I'm glad he is okay. He is debatably the best Center in NBA history. Russell, Wilt and Kareem are head and shoulders above any others.

    He is undeniably the best winner in NBA history though. I am glad for Bill that he is ok.
