(Bill) Russell also touched on the Heat continually adding veterans around the core of (LeBron) James, Dwyane Wade and (Chris) Bosh. “What Miami is doing is similar to a theory that Red [Auerbach, the legendary Celtics coach] used to have,” Russell said. “You have a core group and you bring in some veterans so you don’t have rookies coming off the bench. Most of the time it worked but sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes, we would bring a veteran in hoping to get one more year out of them but they were psychologically destructive, so we can only use them one year. They were not about winning. They were about their career.”
