    Red Auerbach Dies At 89

    Red Auerbach Dies At 89

    Red Auerbach, perhaps the greatest coach in the history of the NBA, has died at 89. Auerbach led the Celtics to eight straight titles from 1959-66 and won nine overall.

    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped

    That's too bad.
    The amount of history with Red is just amazing.

    are you inferring Auerbach isn't or am I reading too much into it?

    the guy was with NBA since its inception. he won 9 world championships. I think he's the greatest coach in the history of sports, let alone basketball.

    others: wooden, jackson, bowman

    lombardi?
    I would disagree about being the GREATEST...that title belongs to Wooden.

    BUT he definitely belongs AMONG the greats (and I say this despite the fact that I am a Celtics hater).

    I do respect his accomplishments and his unique persona will be sorely missed in the sports world.


    RIP Red.

    Anyone who can coach a team to 8 straight championships is pretty good.

    RIP Red.

    Of course, there was no free agency back then...but it is an accomplishment.

    True, before pro athletes were money grubbing pigs
