    He saw the worth of players that everybody else missed and never a thug among them because he just wouldn't allow it.

    That tradition was passed down to coach and players through the years and decades.
    I think the Yankees are the winningest of all time.

    The Celtics had maybe the best run over a shorter time frame...

    Didn't Russell win 11 rings in about 13 years?

    I don't really have an opinion about Red Auerbach. But this was supposed to be for Black History Month.
    Yeah... these 'behind every great black man is a great white man' accolades are pretty tasteless, especially as part of black history month.

    Kind of like one of those White Man's Burden movies where a white family takes in a black kid and teaches him how to use a fork.
