Bill Russell Collapses at Speech

Basketball legend Bill Russell gave fans a scare on Thursday when he fainted during a speech in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Russell, 80, is a frequent face at NBA functions, acting as an ambassador for the league. He apparently was telling a story about Wilt Chamberlain to employees from the company Konica Minolta when he began to sway at the podium and then fell. He is now recovering at home, says a spokesperson.
