Arnold Jacob "Red" Auerbach - September 20, 1917 to October 28, 2006

The Greatest NBA Coach of All Time, Red Auerbach, died last night.

What can be said about Red Auerbach and his Celtics teams? He did something that not even Phil Jackson could do. He won nine NBA rings with the same city. Red was the The Coach of Boston. A cigar in his mouth and his eye on the prize at all times. After leaving Boston, he continued to do the one thing he loved to do. He continued to coach his "kids".

He won 938 games in the NBA, the second highest win records. The highest goes to one of his friends, Lenny Wilkens, with 1,332 wins.

Red won with fire, passion, and most importantly, class. Even the current thugs of the NBA regard Red as The Man. How much influence does Red have? All coaches have in form or another tried to emulate Red's ability. Only Phil got close.

There will never be another Red Auerbach, and a man like him, the NBA needs now more than ever. Red was a man who wouldn't take any of the thuggery in HIS locker room. A man who wasn't afraid to tell his star play to "Shut up and play. I don't give a damn who endorses you." His most blantant point for all coaches to tack down on their boards. "Animals, you discipline. People, you handle with respect."

Rest In Peace, Coach. May your wisdom impact all generations.

Not only am I a lifelong Celtics fan, but I'm also old enough to remember when CBS used to show basketball tips from Red during their games. The claymation figure of Red they used to open each segment was just priceless. Red Auerbach was and is the Boston Celtics; it just isn't going to be the same without him around. Charles Barkley called him "basketball royalty"; I can't think of a better description.

Google execs Eric Schmidt, Larry Page and Sergey Brin [url=http://www.uggbootscheapout...]Ugg Boots Cheap[/url] have offered to pay the full $33 million cost of renovating Hangar One, a giant structure at NASA's Moffett Field in Mountain View that once housed Navy blimps. But as the San Jose [url=http://www.uggbootoncanada....]Ugg Boots Canada[/url] Mercury-News notes, there's a catch: the trio of billionaires want to use up to two-thirds of the floor space to house their eight private jets. The story notes that the triumvirate made the proposal in September; the offer was disclosed at a meeting [url=]Ugg Boots UK[/url] last week of a committee overseeing the renovation of the historic structure. NASA is reportedly mulling the offer over. The offer was actually made through a company [url=]Cheap Ugg Boots UK[/url] owned by the three men called H211.NASA has been in the process of removing the building's outer shell, which is riddled with toxic [url=]Uggs Canada[/url] PCBs, the Merc notes.
