The sports world paid tribute to Bill Russell and Vin Scully, two titans of their fields, and more from our quotes of the week.
“He’s the most important person to put on a basketball uniform ever.”
“[His] extraordinary contribution to the sport is one thing, and then his extraordinary contribution as an activist is something else. … Any issue, Bill was on the right side of it.”
“He was the best there ever was.”
“There’s not a better storyteller, and I think everyone considers him family. He was in our living rooms for many generations. He lived a fantastic life, a legacy that will live on forever.”
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, on Scully
