"The Last Pass - Cousy, Russell, the Celtics, and What Matters in the End". A must read for anyone in Massachusetts. A tear jerker when you read about the racial climate in Boston in the '50's. I met Bill Russell at SFO in 1978. I was with my wife, Polynesian, big afro. We sere on the same flight from Frisco to Seattle. I couldn't get over how nice he was. But after reading this...he was so pleasant because we were an inter-racial couple. A rare sight in those days, but things had changed in his lifetime. I gotta get a copy to my son. He was 3 months old at that meeting, my wife was holding him.
