    Remarkable how the birth of one person 100 years ago in the Brooklyn ghetto could impact my life so much and the lives of so many sports fans! Thank you for everything, Red!

    Yeah somebody forgot to tell NBA TV:rolleyes:

    If you're thinking of running a business, or a sports team, or anything for that matter that requires leadership, responsibility and good old fashioned common sense, your example is right here with us in Boston.

    It's amazing to me, how the Celtics organization itself is oblivious to the lessons left by Red. But, I guess geniuses don't come around every day. It's not fair, but I always say that if Ainge were running the team in the 60's, we'd have won maybe one title. With Red we won nine.

    Of course, if all the Bill the Butcher worshipping anti-immigrants in this country had their way, Red's parents never would have made it here in the first place.

    Among other things, I love how Red would tell the world what he was going to do, and then do it. At his bleakest time here, with the reprehensible John Y. Brown sitting alongside, Red puffed on his cigar, and calmly stated, "We're going to draft Larry Bird, and we're going to be right back on top..."

    At maybe his last public formal appearance, Red first mentioned how much he hated those things, but that he was impressed enough to show anyway.

    "I'd like to thank all the people responsible for me being able to be here tonight," he said. He then rattled off the names of half a dozen doctors and medical specialists involved in his treatment.

    I would've given the rest of your post a Like if it weren't for the above quote, which has no business whatsoever being in a thread such as this one.

    And it's not that it really matters, but who the **** is Bill the Butcher?
