Bill Russell Sues EA and NCAA

Retired Boston Celtics center Bill Russell is suing Electronic Arts and the National Collegiate Athletic Association in U.S. District Court for using his likeness without his consent in a "Tournament of Legends" feature in EA's NCAA basketball game, reports Bloomberg Businessweek. The 77 year-old Russell, a two-time NCAA champion, 11-time NBA champion; and five-time MVP, seeks a court order blocking further sale of the videos and video games, disgorgement of profits from the games, as well as unspecified damages. Thanks Gamasutra.

It's greed to want control of your own image and name? I'm guessing the money is more a desire to penalize the company than compensate him. He doesn't need the money.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

Bill who?

Guy should be honored they remembered his old ass.

Greed dictates that money is more important than honor. And yeah, I know who he is; I just don't care.
