Robert "The Chief" Parish was a focused, unflappable and superbly conditioned athlete. Even at 7'1" and more than 240 pounds, Parish was one the best big men at running the floor. His high arc jump shot was a trademark offensive weapon. Parish average 21.6 points a game during four years as a starter at Centenary College in Louisiana and was an All-American in 1975. His 21-year NBA career included playing with the Boston Celtics, the Charlotte Hornets, and the Chicago Bulls. Parish teamed with fellow Hall of Famers Larry Bird and Kevin McHale to make Boston's frontline one of the greatest in NBA history. A formidable shot blocker and big-time rebounder, he helped lead the Celtics to NBA Championships in 1981, 1984, and 1986. Parish was named to the NBA All-Star team nine different seasons, as well as being named to the NBA 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.
