Red's Army

Happy Birthday Red!

Today would have been Red Auerbach's 94th birthday.  Celebrate with a cigar if you'd like, or just watch these videos of Red teaching some of the finer points of basketball… or in the case of the first video… railing against all the flopping.  

I'm guessing Manu Ginobili wouldn't have been Red's favorite player.

Here, Red talks to Dr. J, Moses Malone and other Sixers about dunking:

And here, Red talks to Larry Bird about free throws

Want to kill some time?  Go to You Tube and search "Red on Roundball" for all of his videos

    Now there’s a man that stood the test of time. If there were not a team call the Red Soxs, I’m sure the Celtics would have change their name to the Red-Ticks.

    My two biggest gripes about pro basketball- flopping and the incessant complaining/bitching after every freaking call.
    Great post fellas, classic Red- love seeing him in the short-sleeve warm-up. My man Wes Unseld was a helluva player in his day, definitly one of the greats.
