It's apparently throwback day here on Red's Army.   Next up Bill Russell, who sat down for an hour long special on the Golf Channel to regale us with story after story.  They're all awesome, and they range from playing days, to the civil rights movement, to his life as a child.  In this excerpt, [...]

Schwan: NBA stands for No Box-out Association

By Henry Schwan When was the last time you saw anyone in the NBA box someone out for a rebound? Boxing out at the highest level of professional basketball is as extinct as the Woolly Mammoth. Case in point, the Celtics Thursday night loss to the Lakers. In fourth quarter crunch time, Pau Gasol and [...]

Happy Birthday Red!

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, [...]

Breaks of the Game: The Revolving Ownership Door of the Boston Celtics

Continuing our series of Celtics related excerpts from David Halberstam's "The Breaks of the Game," we take a look at why the Celtics had a revolving door of ownership.  You would think that one of the greatest organizations in sports, not just basketball, would have a short ledger of ownership throughout the years.  The LA [...]

The lockout is here, but we're not gonna let it hold us down. We're still going to have fun somehow.  So every so often we're gonna say F**k a lockout… and still keep on keepin' on.
