Boston Celtic great #33 Larry Bird with former General Manager Red Auerbach print from 1981 Championship fame versus the Houston Rockets.

Larry Bird literally took the cigar out of Red Auerbach's mouth in the raucous aftermath of the Celtics' championship victory over the Rockets

The Celtics’ victory over the Rockets to win their 14th NBA title appeared in the Globe on Friday, May 15, 1981, under the headline, “Boston again king of basketball hill.”

The picture from this one came on the presentation stand. Larry Bird reached downward and plucked the cigar from the little balding man’s mouth and put it in his own mouth.

Smile! Larry Bird smoked Red Auerbach's cigar and the cameras clicked and all was right with the world again, at least that part of it in the faraway New England corner. The Boston Celtics were champions once more. Bird is smoking a victory cigar just like Red did. Celtics photo frame
