This week the sports world lost two icons. Eleven-time NBA champion and five-time MVP Bill Russell passed away peacefully at the age of 88 on Sunday, and Vin Scully, arguably the greatest play-by-play broadcaster of all time, did the same at the age of 94 Wednesday morning. These two will forever be remembered as legends who were at the top of their profession and inspired so many people to chase their dreams and not be afraid to go down in the history books.

Justin Paura reflects on what both icons meant to the sports world and beyond.
