Even with everything that’s going on in the world, it was hard not to watch what was going down between the Blazers and Celtics on Sunday.
As Dame led a comeback charge for Portland, the twitter world erupted with responses from shocked fans.
But for one Twitter user, he found out the hard way that not even the excitement of a basketball game excuses you from being flamed on social media.
After mentioning a play by Marcus Smart (in which he rips the bell from Carmelo Anthony), he talked about Bill Russell “looking down from heaven smiling” as if he were dead.
Smart sent Melo’s shit and kept it in bounds. Bill Russell is looking down from heaven smiling.

The Celtics legend actually responded to the Tweet to let the world know he was alive and well. And, in case you haven’t guessed, it was pretty entertaining.
Just in case anyone cares, I am still alive, at least I was the last time I checked. I’m watching @celtics vs @trailblazers @NBA @NBAonABC Hey @paulpierce34 can you let them know I’m still hanging in there https://t.co/McGp25rdvd

So, just so everyone knows, Bill Russell is not dead! In fact, he’s still out there living his best life, watching this current NBA season play out like the rest of us.
