“To be a successful coach you should be and look prepared. You must be a man of integrity. Never break your word. Don’t have two sets of standards. Remember you don’t handle players–you handle pets. You deal with players. Stand up for your players. Show them you care–on and off the court. Very important–it’s not ‘how’ or ‘what’ you say but what they absorb.”
—Red Auerbach

to RIP Red

  1. great mens are ment to be remembered, and Red was one of them


  2. never could stand that guy, but eventually i matured enough to respect him.

    to a degree.

    rest in peace, you old bastard.


  3. Died a thousand deaths in the 60’s when Auerbach always got the best of the Lakers. Was ecstatic in ’85 when we finally beat him! He was a great coach and a “character” for the ages in the NBA.
