ESPN is reporting that NBA legend Bill Russell was taken to the hospital on Thursday after feeling faint while giving a speech in Nevada.

Russell, 80, left the Lake Tahoe-based event on a stretcher and was taken to a hospital as a precaution, according to the Celtics.

The Hall of Fame center is "feeling better," the Celtics said, and is expected to fly back to his Seattle-area home as early as Thursday night.
Good news that Russell is feeling better.
