Robert "The Chief" Parish knows his basketball, and knows how to look good while playing.
While partnering with Gillette in their support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America's Passport to Manhood campaign, Parish was kind enough to chat with Bleacher Report about his involvement with the program. And that wasn't all.
In addition to the grooming tips he shared with Boston's eager young minds, we touched upon a little bit of everything. From Dwight Howard and Parish's all-time Boston Celtics starting five, to trash-talking from his days in Beantown, to Larry Bird's shoelaces and Kevin McHale's sock preferences.
You read those last two correctly, which means you don't want to miss what he had to say.
He wasn't just busy providing some insight into proper hygiene and how it ties into adulthood. He also took the time to provide us with a look at the NBA of yesterday and today through the eyes of a champion.
