13. Robert Parish
Robert Parish was part of one of the great trade heists in NBA history. The center out of Centenary was selected eighth overall by the Warriors in 1976. He played with them until 1980 when Red Auerbach sent the No. 1 overall pick – turned out to be Joe Barry Carroll – to Golden State for Parish. The deal saw another No. 1 pick head west and the Celtics received Golden State’s No. 3 overall selection, which they used to choose Kevin McHale. Talk about a great trade! “The Chief” wound up a four-time NBA champion and nine-time All-Star. His 00 jersey was retired by Boston and he was chosen as one of the top 50 NBA players of all-time.
