Legendary Boston Celtics coach "Red" Auerbach died yesterday. During his coaching career, Red won 938 games and nine championship titles. Moreover, under Auerbach’s guidance as coach, general manager and team president the Celtics won 16 titles. Red also was the first NBA coach to hire a black player, Chuck Cooper, and a black coach, Bill Russell. In his honor smoke a cigar and visit his a life-sized sculpture at Fanueil Hall.
