When Monsters on the Boards Roamed the Earth

The Box Score Show

Jul 23 2021 • 19 mins

The date was April 18, 1962, and the two most storied franchises in NBA history were facing off in Game 7 of the NBA Finals: the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers. In the end, it was the seemingly unbeatable Celtics that came out on top in a 110-107 overtime victory to claim a fourth consecutive NBA title. But the star of the show was Bill Russell, who put up 30 points and grabbed … wait for it … 40 rebounds. Yes, you read that right. The legend had 30 points and 40 rebounds in a winner-takes-all, overtime, Game 7 with the title on the line. Kevin Chroust and Chris De Salvo take us back to an era where there were rebounding opportunities aplenty. And Russell grabbed them.
