To open the 2016 ESPY Awards, four of the NBA’s biggest stars – Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and LeBron James – stood together and made a passionate call to action. They called on their fellow athletes to stand up, speak out, and engage their communities to address the racial tensions that have been plaguing our country for decades. The four athletes cited the examples set by their predecessors – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Billie Jean King, and Arthur Ashe, among others – as the standard that today’s generation must aspire to.

Bill Russell legacy on the court cannot be matched. 11 NBA Championships, NBA Hall of Fame, NBA All Time Team, the list goes on. Beyond his accomplishments on the court, his contributions to society were equally as notable. Bill's courage in the face of hatred during his playing career earned him another honor, the 2019 Arthur Ashe Award.
