Watch what Bill Russell tells 5 legends at NBA Awards Show

The inaugural NBA Awards Show took place on Monday, and while it was the first time the league has held an awards show, it will be hard for any moment to top Bill Russell's appearance.

The Boston Celtics legend was in attendance to receive a lifetime achievement award, which was presented by a quintet of legendary NBA big men, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O'Neal, Dikembe Mutombo, Alonzo Mourning and David Robinson.
