I know the NBA already gives out the Bill Russell Trophy to the Finals’ Most Valuable Player, which is a huge honor. But in light of Deadspin digging up the highlights from Bill Russell and Bernard King’s cameos on a “Miami Vice” episode called “The Fix,” I think they should expand the requirements to include an appearance on a television show.

Considering he’s the only one to play in the NBA Finals AND appear on an episode of “Law and Order: SVU” during the same season, congratulations to Chris Bosh on winning the inaugural Bill Russell Trophy for Excellence in Basketball and Being in Crime Shows. Quite the accomplishment.
