ESPN's Jalen Rose reacts to the news the Boston Celtics will honor Bill Russell with parquet changes




 

While the Boston Celtics might not have had everything about their looming 2022-23 NBA season go the way they would have liked it to, they got a new change to the parquet floor they play on absolutely perfect for the season to come. After the passing of Hall of Fame Boston big man Bill Russell this summer, the team decided to honor the 11-time champ with some changes to the Celtics' playing court.

The team has added a giant No. 6 at either end of the court in the paint to pay tribute to the man who built the legend of the Celtics from the center position in a move hailed around the league as a just wat to pay tribute to Russell.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear how the hosts of the ESPN "Jalen and Jacoby" show feel about the honor on a recent episode of their show in which they talked it over.
