Red and Me
“Bill Russell was the greatest team basketball player ever….[He] has produced a moving tribute to his friend and, in a larger sense, to friendship.”
In Red and Me, Boston Celtics basketball legend Bill Russell pays homage to his mentor and coach, the inimitable Red Auerbach. A poignant remembrance of a life-altering relationship in the tradition of Big Russ and Me and Tuesdays With Morrie, Red and Me tells an unforgettable story of one unlikely and enduring friendship set against the backdrop of the greatest basketball dynasty in NBA history.
Red and Me
Having been an admirer of what the 1950's and 1960's Celtics accomplished, and having met Red Auerbach on a couple of occasions, I wanted to see what the best player ever had to say about his coach, who had such respect for the player. Red and Me is fabulous!!! A great story of Bill Russel's life and how it unexpectedly intertwined with Auerbach's for deacdes . It tells not only about a true friendship but teaches many real lessons for life that can be used in sports and throughout anyone's life.
