Hall of Fame center Bill Russell is in the spotlight -- but, this time, not for his basketball skills. Last Wednesday, the former Celtics star was arrested for having a gun at the airport, CBS reports.
A loaded .38-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun was found in Russell's carry-on while he was going through security at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport last week. The gun was promptly confiscated.
Over the weekend, Russell has issued a statement regarding the incident. What is his stance on the situation, and what can we learn from this?
