Red and me : my coach, my lifelong friend by Bill Russell( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 933 libraries worldwide
Basketball legend Bill Russell pays homage to his mentor and coach, the inimitable Red Auerbach, in this story of an unlikely and enduring friendship set against the backdrop of the greatest basketball dynasty in NBA history. When Bill Russell joined the Boston Celtics in 1957 as the nation's first prominent black basketball star, he was not expecting much from his coach. Despite two national college championships and an Olympic gold medal, Russell's previous coaches--all whites--had barely spoken to him. Russell's style was unorthodox, redefining the meaning of defense and offense, and many scouts dismissed him. Yet Auerbach, the Jewish outsider in Irish Boston, immediately took to Russell, the African American from Louisiana and Oakland, and he was a coach like no other. Together they made sports history, battled prejudice both on and off the court, created a team chemistry for the ages--and became lifelong friends.--From publisher description

Red and me : my coach, my lifelong friend by Bill Russell( Sound Recording )

Red Auerbach, one of the greatest coaches in sports history, died on October 28, 2006. Bill Russell, the five-time MVP and star center on the Auerbach teams that won eleven championships in thirteen years, said little in public at the time. His relationship with his coach had been so deeply personal that he could not express it with a brief comment. In fact, little known to the public, Auerbach and Russell--one short, brash Jew from Brooklyn, the other a tall, intense African-American from Louisiana and Oakland-- were far more than just coach and player
