Celtics legend Bill Russell honored Kobe Bryant prior to Sunday afternoon’s Lakers and Celtics game in Boston.  It’s the Lakers first game against the Celtics since Kobe’s death.

Russell honored Kobe by putting aside one of the biggest rivalries in all of sports by wearing a Kobe No. 24 Lakers jersey.  It’s a classic move and you would expect nothing less from Russell.
