Annotation Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell fondly remembers his remarkable relationship with his coach Red Auerbach, with whom he won an unprecedented 11 championships in 13 seasons. In professional sports, the unfortunate fact is that winning is often the only thing that matters, but the legacy of Auerbach and Russell can not be displayed in a trophy case. Despite winning two NCAA championships and an Olympic gold medal, Russell had battled bitter racism at every level of his basketball career, often from his own teammates and coaches, and he expected the same from his NBA coach. But Auerbach, as a Jewish man in hardcore Catholic Boston, was no stranger to discrimination, and he immediately forged a special bond with his superstar center. Their friendship lasted long after both had retired, as they continued to speak regularly and help each other through life's tribulations. More than just a sports book, RED AND ME is a singular representation of the strength available to all of us through companionship and camaraderie.
