The Chief turns 60 today.

Robert Parish is a Hall of Fame center who had some epic battles with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Moses Malone back in the 1980s, and helped anchor the Boston Celtics to three NBA titles. He was drafted No. 8 by the Warriors out of little Centenary College of Louisiana, but we all remember him as a Celtic.

He won four titles (three with Boston, one with the 1997 Bulls), was a nine-time All-Star and averaged 18.4 points and 11.6 rebounds a game over his career.

Happy birthday Chief. The rest of you, enjoy.

    That thumbnail looks scarily similar to Greg Oden.

    The Chief was one of the smoothest, mobile big men ever. But most of all he played with heart and passion – he WANTED to win as much as Bird and McHale – the three of them – and yes Ainge too – were one of the strongest in history.
