The NBA is going to retire Celtics legend Bill Russell's number six league-wide. 

Russell passed away late last month at the age of 88. 

He becomes the first player in NBA history to have his number retired by the entire league. All players will also wear a patch on the right shoulder of their jerseys during the upcoming season. 

Every arena's court will also display a clover-shaped logo with the number 6 inside. 

Russell was a five-time MVP and eleven time world champion.
