Legendary Boston Celtics center Robert Parish may have been drafted by the Golden State Warriors, but when it comes to rooting interests, the big man of the Boston Hall of Fame has recently thrown his weight behind the team he’s with Won 3 of his 4 NBA titles.
At a rally for the Celtics in the 2022 NBA Finals, where they face the dubs who picked Parish with the eighth overall pick of the 1976 NBA draft, Chief (as Parish is often called) shared his thoughts on Boston’s chances . “You[have]a chance to do something special,” Parish said of CBS Boston’s Paul Burton. “To be part of the legendary, rich history of the Celtics.
“So I definitely cheer for them and wish them the very best,” he added. “I think it’s going to be a long, grueling series.”
Parish won titles with the Celtics in 1981, 1984 and 1986, his only other championship coming later in his career with Michael Jordan and the Bulls in 1997.
“It makes you proud, and when you go into the garden you look up and you can say, hey, I’m part of some of those banners up there,” he offered.
Hopefully they’ll be among them again soon.
