It's a sad day in the basketball world.

Red was the greatest basketball coach of all-time. He was the architect of the most storied franchise in the sport.

He will be missed immensely by the Celtics organization and it's fans.

Not only a great coach but a great person. One of the first coaches in sports to recognize talent and not skin color during a time of immense racism and segregation in the world. He ran the 2nd most storied franchise in sports history (sorry, the a Yankees are number 1)!

He was arguabley the greatest coach in NBA history. He was probably the main piece of the greatest dynasty in sports history. He was a great coach, a true legend and he will be missed.

Though i cant believe he lived that long anyway, with all the victory cigars he smoked.

The greatest GM in NBA history. He will be missed.

I listened to stories about him all day today. He was The Man.

Yeah, you can't really make that particular claim without adding Real Madrid, Manchester United or AC Milán into the discussion. So why don't we better leave it at the 2nd most storied franchise in American sports history.

And sad to see him go.

I'm not a big Celtics fan but I always liked Red Aurbach. I liked how he used to stick to Phil Jackson cuz he had more rings than Jackson did. :lol:

As a Sixer's fan I have never liked the Celtics much, but you have to give Red his props. I remember watching "Red on Roundball" back in the 70's when he was showing different plays.
