Athletes By The Numbers: Who Is The Greatest?
No. 00, Robert Parish
The most recognized player ever to were double zero was Hall of Famer Robert Parish. A four-time NBA champion, Parish, at 43 years old became the third oldest player to ever play an NBA game. At the start of the 2010 season, his 1,611 games played over 21 seasons will never be challenged by any player to ever wear an NBA uniform. Parish, a member of the "Big Three" along with Larry Bird and Kevin McHale, were all named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. Regarded as one of the greatest frontcourts in NBA history, Parish will forever be known as the "man-in-the middle" during the Celtics reign as NBA champions during the 1980s.
