I remember David playing for Bellport HS in the Summer league In Smithtown before St.Johns. He was lightning quick to his left and played above the rim. All eyes were in him

He was absolutely the best player at St. John and in the Pros. Denver nuggets coach felt he was better than Irving and told David too slow down and stop showing off because Irving is the Best. He held him back and I will never forget! Spain fans really lived him and David was the Michael Jordan of International Ball.

A real dunker in Spain! His dunk over a kid, winning the first slam dunk contest, was unforgettable.

David is the greatest player I have ever seen and played with they used to have a commercial with his block shot against georgetown pat ewing his hand was above the the box head even with the rim they used to play it over and over on wild world of sports it was awesome. David was almost god like on and off the court a true gentlemen .

Dave and I used to hang out when he was playing pro basketball for Estudiantes in the Spanish League from 1983-1986. I was stationed at Torrejon, AB outside of Madrid at the time. I lost contact with him when I got an assignment to Washington State. Anyone who has contact with him please give him my contact information in Seattle, Washington. My Email is Thank you.

I met David Russell about 21 years ago and we became friends instantly. He has 2 beautiful little girls(twins) and still has that great sense of humor. Dave still look like he can take you to the hoop!

David coached Bellport's Varsity my junior year (1990-91) after Moose had his heart attack. He was an unbelievable mentor to me. Years later I played with Chris Mullin at a charity tournament and mentioned I knew David. Mully went on-and-on about what a great teammate he was...
