From our colleagues at AQR comes this great quote by Bill Russell, widely considered one of the best players in NBA history.
Concentration and mental toughness are the margins of victory. Bill Russell
He played for the Boston Celtics, from 1956 to 1969, was a five time NBA MVP and twelve time All Star. He also won a gold medal at the Melbourne Olympic games as Captain of the US Basketball team. His concentration and tough mindset was legendary and especially his ability to inspire his teammates to elevate their defensive play.
Caps off to Bill Russell and this week’s fridge magnet quote.
