The Boston Celtics became the last NBA team to add cheerleaders. The debuted tonight. The Celtics did it days after Red Auerbach, who didn't like the idea, died. I don't know what that means, but it must mean something.
Red Auerbach (1917-2006) was the most successful coach in American pro sports history. He retired in 1966, having won the last eight straight league championships, and nine of the last ten (including all ten conference titles). They lost the next year, but won the two after that, bringing the total to 11 out of 13.
Red died soon after the last Red Sox World Series championship in 2004, and was born shortly before the previous one in 1918.
