Russell statue going up at City Hall Plaza

The news conference to announce the statue has just wrapped up and it's going to be at Boston's City Hall plaza.  That is great news, because City Hall Plaza is big brick wasteland and City Hall itself looks like someone poured concrete over a big Jenga puzzle.  This statue will help make it more palatable. 

I know we've been looking at poses and wondering what will work best.  I love Chuck's idea from the Morning Dump… but I think the whole goal here is to capture everything Bill Russell is and was.  He was much more than a basketball player… so I'm thinking we're going to get an interpretation of him that includes everything.
