Red’s Got a Different Kind of Shot
Date: ca. 1958 to 1963
Red Auerbach already had a nickname, but maybe he should have added “Rifleman.” Auerbach and his team toured the set of the hit show “The Rifleman,” which starred former Celtics player Chuck Connors. Apart from his five-year run on the Western show, Connors also starred in films opposite Hollywood legends like Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster and John Wayne.
