TTM Triumph #8: Cazzie Russell

Here's one that I was surprised to get back so quickly, especially after reading of the mixed success that other's have had.

Mr. Russell seems be very busy with multiple projects, so you apparently have to get him at just the right time, which I guess I did.
A few career highlights: Led Michigan to three straight Big Ten titles and two NCAA title game appearances, averaged almost 31 points a game his senior season (1966) and was named college player of the year, was the #1 pick in the 1966 NBA draft, won an NBA title with the Knicks in 1970, was an All-Star in 1972, played a total of 12 seasons in the NBA, and has coached for a number of teams at many different levels.

As always, I would like to send out a big thank you to Mr. Russell.
