V.I.P.
Two of these guys are all-time great coaches.

Who would you rank higher between the two?

Auerbach is the second best coach in history imo, only behind Phil Jackson.

I would say Pop is better. Auerbach was a better GM. But Bill Russell coached the Celtics to two titles as player-coach. The rest of his career he was a .500 coach. Pop is an outstanding coach at all phases of the game. I think the Celtics had the best teams by far and Red was also a very good coach.

I pretty much agree with this.
