Book Review: Red And Me
This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.
“The team game was the game I wanted to play.”
Bill Russell is the Ultimate Winner in any professional team sport. Russell won 11 NBA championships with the Boston Celtics in 13 seasons. Bill Russell was not a big-time scorer of highlights-type of player, however (and there was no ESPN in the 60s anyhow). He was all about 2 things: 1) The Team 2) Winning.
Red And Me gives the reader a deep look into Russell’s relationship with his late coach and friend Red Auerbach. If you’re into Russell or Red or the Boston Celtics, read this book.
That pretty much sums it up.
