Yesterday's Generations series piece saw the present making the deferential play to the past. The ties within the Celtics family are secured both ways, though, and the past is often found assisting the present as well. Take the Cooz pitching the perfect pass to the Truth here on a classic fastbreak. The play seems so ordinary and simple but Red Auerbach, Bob Cousy, Bill Russell and the rest of the C's actually researched and refined this maneuver back in the day, en route to 11 NBA World Championships. It is a skill perfected by one Generation and completed by the next. A tradition which, you may say, is passed... to present.
