Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual cards for celebrities wearing jerseys. A little over a year since Kobe Bryant tragically died, I feature two celebrities keeping his memory alive by wearing his jersey.
In any discussion of the greatest in basketball, Bill Russell must be mentioned. A five-time MVP, 12 time All-Star and 11 time NBA champ in his 13 year career, Russell also won two championships as a coach. Russell is tied with Henri Richard (NHL) for most championships won as a player in North American sports. Although one of the faces of the Boston Celtics franchise, Russell wore a Kobe jersey in tribute to earn his Celebrity Jersey Card.
