Robert Parish was born August 30, 1953.
Parish helped the Celtics win NBA titles in 1981, 1984 and 1986. At the end of his career, he earned another ring as a reserve for the Bulls in 1997.
The Chief, Kevin McHale and Larry Bird comprised the Celtics' Big Three frontcourt that also reached the NBA Finals in 1985 and 1987.
Drafted in the first round by the Warriors in 1976, Parish was dealt to the Celtics in 1980. The trade included a draft pick that Boston used to draft McHale. The Warriors got the top overall pick through the trade and took Joe Barry Carroll.
