He was an idol in my childhood. Read everything I could about the fabulous Cooz. Watched him engineer the famous Celtics fast break. I became a Celtics fan temporarily at that time because of him. I listened to him in interviews.He was and continues to be a role model. He brought HC to my attention. And, today he continues to mold my thinking about race relations and issues of social justice. At 75 years of age I still idolize the man. It's not just b-ball. It's the man. His insights and sensitivity are amazing. Thank You, Bob Cousy!
