He's a legend around George Washington University's Main Campus. His prescence will be missed.

RIP Red.

it is a sad day for the nba.

No one, except maybe Tiger Woods, will ever dominate a sport in my lifetime like Red did.

People say he couldn't have done it without Russell. As great as Russell was, the real truth is, Russell couldn't have done it without Red Auerbach.

------------------

"The Yankees won 25 championships. What did it take them, a hundred years? Red won nine in 10. He was the best coach in the history of professional sports. Period."
-- Bill Russell

"He's the greatest manager of men, in all walks of life."
-- John Thompson

"He had a touch with people and could get them committed to what he was doing. He made the Celtics into basketball's Cosa Nostra. We believed it was our thing."
-- Tommy Heinsohn

"He always let me know that more than anybody else, he knew what I was doing. I really loved working with him. It was almost like we were soul mates."
-- Bill Russell

"He's the Godfather of the Celtics."
-- John Havlicek

"Arnold knew how to judge talent, he knew how to acquire it, and he knew how to motivate it."
-- Bob Cousy

One more thing. I have one picture in my den of a sports figure(s). It's a shot of Bill Russell, and Wilt Chamberlain, under the boards in the old Boston Garden, going up for a rebound. They are chest to chest, arms stretching upward towards the descending ball, and Russell's middle finger, on the hand closest to the ball, is about a half inch higher then Chamberlains. What a picture.

Sorry to hear a legend has passed. At least he lived a long life.

Hey Red lived to be 89 years old and had a great live. He coached one of the greatest dynasties in all of sports. Yes its sad when someone passes. But celebrate Red's live more then moarn his death. Light up a big fat cigar and smoke one for Red. You damn well Red would.
