Another Story from Howard Kellman


"Basketball is like war in that offensive weapons are developed first, and it takes awhile for the defense to catch up."

Arnold "Red" Auerbach; Legendary Head Coach, General Manager, and President of the Boston Celtics

Sport Quote Photo

Red Auerbach won nineĀ  NBA Championships as Head Coach of the Boston Celtics. He presided over seven other Championship teams as the Celtics General Manager. Very few people know that prior to becoming the Celtics Coach, he coached the Washington Capitols and Tri-Cities Blackhawks.

Auerbach drafted the NBA's first African-American player (Chuck Cooper); he was the first coach to have his starting line-up composed of five African-American players and he was the first General Manager in the four major team sports to hire an African-American Head Coach (Bill Russell).

Only Phil Jackson (11) has won more NBA titles as a head coach than Red Auerbach. One major difference: Auerbach also was responsible for signing, drafting and trading players.

Auerbach was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1969.

Trust me, it will pay off."
