Your Morning Dump… The Bill Russell statue gets a home


Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

A site has been chosen for the statue of Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell and the location will be announced today by Mayor Thomas M. Menino, a team spokeswoman said yesterday. The mayor will be joined by Celtics co-owner Stephen Pagliuca and members of the Bill Russell Legacy Project Committee in detailing plans for a tribute to the NBA Hall of Famer. In February, President Obama presented Russell, who won 11 NBA titles with the Celtics as a player and a coach, with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in honor of his civil rights advocacy.

Globe – Russell statue site to be disclosed today

Any ideas on where the statue might be located? Once we find out the where, the next big question will be what the statue will look like. I vote for the pose above, minus Chamberlain.

Congrats again to Mr. Russell for this long overdue honor.
