THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20: RED AUERBACH

Profile America — Thursday, September 20th.  Today marks the 95th anniversary of the birth of one of basketball's most famous personalities — Red Auerbach.  As coach of the Boston Celtics, he won nine NBA titles.  After retiring as coach, he became general manager, then president until his death in 2006.  He was an early backer of hiring African-American players, and developed the fast break as a potent offensive weapon.  Auerbach was named the greatest coach in NBA history and is widely considered to be the greatest sports executive of all time.  Among U.S. adults, more than 8.5 million attend NBA games each year.  You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy, from the American Community Survey at www.census.gov.
