Capping Off Red’s Career
Adidas created hats to commemorate Red Auerbach’s remarkable career with the Celtics. When he retired from coaching in 1966, the Celtics sent off Auerbach in style with another NBA World Championship title by defeating rival Los Angeles Lakers, 4-3. Within three years of leaving the bench, the NBA inducted Auerbach into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
