This is what you get when you google the "Celtic Mystique".......the article starts out with a quote from Paul Silas after becoming a Celtic....the article goes on to tell the Celtic story and the legend that is Red Auerbach and his glorious team of players through the years.....this should be required reading for those that are too young to remember the '50's through the '80's.......ESPN Classic

yes that's Red.....the guy who built the team from the ground up and won 9 championships (all with the Celtics) before hanging it up at age 48 to becoming GM and running basketball operations for almost 20 years.....meanwhile Phil, who has more titles with two different teams, still thinks he might want to keep coaching into his late 60's....of course, only if the opportunity is right and he doesn't have to build a team....it must be championship ready or no go.....at this point he is simply a mercenary...dating the owner's daughter was one of his best moves.....of course he did quit so he could write a book trashing Kobe.....but the money was too good to stay away....
