Red


To yours truly, Red Auerbach was the best basketball coach in history as he not only coached but also was the general manager who had to wheel and deal to get the players he wanted for the Celtics. Guile, loyalty to players and innovation to the max regarding how basketball should be played was Auerbach's genius, something I see reflected in how Geno Auriemma's CT women's team plays, fast, selfless and above all else, ruthlessly efficient ball.





Guile was also a factor.







Golden State and the Atlanta Hawks are channeling Red along with Pop's San Antonio Spurs. :)

Lastly, read the ESPN piece in it's entirety. It's great sports writing at it's best.
