Classic Photos of Red Auerbach

Hall of Fame coach Red Auerbach, who led the Boston Celtics to nine NBA championships over 16 seasons, died at the age of 89 on Oct. 28, 2006. As general manager the straight-talking Auerbach, who celebrated victories with a postgame cigar, was also the architect of Celtics teams that won seven more titles in the 1970s and '80s. On the 10th anniversary of his passing, we present these classic photos of Arnold "Red" Auerbach through the years.
