Red Auerbach Passes Away

The great Arnold "Red" Auerbach, architect of the Boston Celtics dynasty, has passed away following a heart attack at the age of 89.

There's a lot to say about the man who either coached or put together 16 championship clubs, and continued to serve in the capacity of President for the club that he has been associated with for over 50 years. He is probably the figure most associated with the Celtics, and the image of him puffing on a victory cigar will continue to be embedded in the memory of basketball fans.

This is sad to hear, and we will miss you greatly, Red.

I may write more later, but I'm not sure what I have to add to the other stories that are out there.
