Im sure MJ and Lebron would both have more rings if they played in an 8 team league where most of the talent was concentrated onto 1 team.
So would Russell, had he played in that fictional universe.
Well, 1 or 2 more championships.
he did. in '57 there were 8 teams. 5 of them with losing records. only one team over .550
I was referring to the claim that "most of the talent was concentrated" onto the Celtics.
That said, for the couple of years that Russell and Heinsohn were in the league and Wilt, West, Baylor, Robertson et al. weren't, the Celtics talent was indeed a nicely large minority of the whole.
