The NBA would not be what it is today if it wasn't for how Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain transcended the game of basketball and the center position into what it is today. They are considered to be two of the greatest players in the history of the league, and many will argue that they were the ones who paved the way for the likes of Shaquille O'Neal, Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, and David Robinson, and therefore should be considered the greatest centers of all time. It's hard to argue this statement when Russell has an NBA record 11 rings, and Wilt's endless list of individual records including the record for most points scored in a game will more than likely forever stand in the record books atop the lists. During a period of time in the 60's long before the NBA went mainstream, these two didn't just battle they went to war against one another. Their teams long standing rivalry only added to the drama when they played one another. One was considered the greatest team player, and the other was considered simply just the greatest. It could be debated for days on end if it's the 11 rings add up that add up to being the greatest of an era, or is it the endless list of individual records? Lakers and Celtics fans will never come to terms with this one.

This dual signed Spalding basketball features bold signatures from both Russell and Chamberlain in silver paint marker. Each signature is on its own individual panel.
