Boston Celtics coach Arnold “Red” Auerbach poses with “Batman” villains  the Riddler (Frank Gorshin), Cat Woman (Lee Meriwether), the Penguin (Burgess Meredith) and the Joker (Cesar Romero) prior to Game 6 of the NBA Finals in Los Angeles on April 26, 1966.  The Lakers would win the game but lose the series two days later in Boston, giving Auerbach his 9th NBA Championship and making him a bigger villain in Los Angeles than any “Batman” character.
