Contest: We’re giving away copies of “Then Russell said to Bird…”

celticsbook The folks at Triumph Books have given us 3 copies of “Then Russell said to Bird…”: The Greatest Celtics Stories Ever Told to pass along to our readers.

In “Then Russell Said to Bird…” The Greatest Celtics Stories Ever Told (Triumph Books, October 2013) by Celtics writer Donald Hubbard, Boston fans are given a peek into the private world of players, managers and broadcasters. Taking Celtics fans into the locker room and onto the court, “Then Russell Said to Bird…” is chock-full of previously unrecorded stories about some of the greatest names to ever put on the Celtics jersey and the most memorable games played throughout the franchise’s history. Hubbard takes fans on a wild journey with moments including:

• Quotes and speeches made by legendary head coach Arnold “Red” Auerbach as well as anecdotes about behind-the-scenes legends such as Walter Brown and Johnny Most

• Historic stories that outline the shaping of the Celtics from the 1950s and 1960s dynasty to the 2008 Championship title and today’s outfit

• Hilarious and previously unpublished off-the-court moments from players, managers and executives including “Big” Ed Sadowski, Bob Cousy and Tommy Heinsohn

• Narratives that reveal how the Celtics franchise has helped shape the history of Boston basketball on a larger scale

Let’s keep the contest rules simple: Name the Celtics leading scorer and his point total for tonight’s game against Denver.

Submit your guess in the comments section by 7:30 pm. Only one entry per person.

If we don’t receive 3 correct point totals, then those who come the closest will win.

If there are more than 3 winning entries, we’ll have a random drawing.

If this becomes too much of a pain in the ass, I reserve the right to give the books to whomever I want.

Am I forgetting anything?

Good luck and Feliz Navidad.
