Celtics legend and 11x NBA champion, Bill Russell, told ESPN that he didn’t even know he won eight straight titles with Boston (1959-1966) until after he retired.
According to ESPN Boston:
It might seem strange but I did not know our Celtic teams won eight championships in a row until about 20 years ago when I read about it in a game program. Our focus was always on that particular season, always one year at a time. The year we played had nothing to do with the previous year or the next year. That’s just the way it was.
