Maybe I should just change the title of this thread to "OMG teh top t10n players nu list," because obviously making a thoughtful thread with some interesting observations from a Hall of Famer doesn't tickle anyone's fancy on this ste.
i met cousy once outside of the garden after a game when i was pretty young (probably 12). didn't ask for an autograph or anything just said "hi" because i recognized him from local celtics broadcasts. he was really nice. asked me if i enjoyed the game. i haven't read his book, but i know that he and russ had to sort of bury the hatchet after they retired.
