Bob "Cooz" Cousy, the Hall of Fame Boston Celtics captain who led the team to its first six championships, has a lot to be proud of. But now, at age 90, he has one last piece of unfinished business.

Pomerantz in the new book, The Last Pass, that he should have been more publicly opposed to the prejudice Russell faced.
