He only averaged 6.7 points per game throughout his career. So, why would Bill Russell boycott the most prestigious honor in his sport because of this unknown guy?

Cooper died in 1984, but for 44 years, Russell has refused to accept the induction until the men who paved the way were respected by his sport. And now, Russell can call himself a Hall-of-Fame basketball player.
