why arent there more interviews with the old timers from the past? Man if I had access I would interview them. There history needs to be documented and they need to be given respect. ESPN can you please hire me so I can interview fan favorites

Hmmm. Cousey traded Oscar Robertson from Cincinnati for Floyd Robinson and Charlie Paulk (ever heard of them? Paulk on played only four seasons) before the 1970-71 season. In his career, Oscar scored 26,710 points (25.7 ppg), gathered 7,804 rebounds (7.5 rpg) and dealt 9,887 (9.5 apg) assist. The year Cousey traded Oscar, Robertson's new team had a league-best 66–16 record, including a then-record 20-game win streak, had a dominating 12–2 record in the playoffs and crowned their season with the NBA title by sweeping the Baltimore Bullets 4–0 in the 1971 NBA Finals. Interesting that the black superstars of the era see Cousey differently than he sees himself..at least now and in retrospect. We are all in charge of our own story.

Sorry but Russel is not top 10. Look at the game he played in. People try to trash the 90s, but sheesh the 50 and 60s were awful. I literally would dominate Bob Cousy easily. I'm dead serious too I would embarass him.

He was intimidated by how great Bill Russell was. And the potential he had. Some people will befriend someone they feel like are no threat to them or their existence.... but will try to shit on a person who they feel threatened by.

So Bob didn't care what Bill had to say in response or whether he accepted his letter as an apology or not. He got his closure & cleared his conscience simply by writing the letter & putting it in his own book to give to him... Smh

Plus he's recognizing that he could've done more which is commendable. I'm sure Russell would've appreciated his support as a face of the league back then but it is what it is at this point. If anything, it sounds like he was intimidated by Russell too and didn't know how to relate to him. He's like 5'11 and an introvert and Russell was 6'10 and outspoken.

keeping it real. I love that. I was doing his move at age 13, getting yelled at by my coach. I survived cancer twice and lost half my face to amputation.. a tumor destroyed my jaw and changed everything.. I was labeled a freak. I decided to start over, move to Barcelona and start a youtube channel to inspire others who feel ugly and not good enough for this world.. Im living proof that it's all about energy and mindset.. with optimism and positive projection you can overcome any mental or physical hurdle. self love from within overpowers any physical shell! go check me out and subscribe if you want to help me grow. i want to give people a spark of change.

That's not true. People who say that are basing it off that one clip when he's dribbling out the clock. Look at all of the clips of him from back then and he's doing crossovers, reverse layups no look passes with both hands and behind the back passes. It's obviously an early era but he was skilled and a legit great player even though it was before full integration.

+MGF Nap he was voted top 50. And he made all-time NBA teams before then. His accomplishments speak for themselves. Was Stockton better? Maybe so (maybe),, but that doesn't take away from his greatness especially since he did it 30 years before Stockton in an early era so he set the foundation for what Stockton could be. Just look up some Cousy clips..
