Of hindsight, Russell says, "Well, you know, you want to say 'No regrets,' but I do have to say I wish I would have been more serious about it, because I probably would have been a multitime world champion and probably would have had an illustrious career on top of that, because I know I was as good as anybody in the world at that time. I really believe that. I kind of regret the fact that I took it with a grain of salt. It came easy, so I took it like that. I didn't have any aspiration to be that guy, and when it happened it was still me. I regret not being hard-core at it. But it was so easy and it didn't seem like I needed to. But I know if I would have done it I could have accomplished a heck of a lot more. But I can't be disappointed with what I got. I'm happy and I've got some good points on the board."
