A small dinner was held to celebrate Bill Russell’s 80th birthday party at Imperial Garden restaurant at Great Wall Mall. Everyone had Peking duck, one of Russell’s favorite dishes. In 1973, he became coach and general manager of the Seattle Supersonics. After winning 36 games in his first season at the helm, he took the SuperSonics to the NBA playoffs in his second year and a 43-39 record. (end)
