A History of Aging NBA Stars Piggybacking Their Way to Rings

Robert Parish

Age: 37
Championship season: 1997 Chicago Bulls
Career statistics: 1611 G, 14.5 PPG, 9.1 RPG, 1.4 APG
Championship season statistics: 43 G, 3.7 PPG, 2.1 RPG, 0.5 APG

The Chief is best known for his three titles and dominant run for the Celtics in the '80s, but NBA historians also remember his last title in Chicago. Parish followed the old "if you can't beat em, join em" mantra and served as the designated old man veteran bench warmer for MJ and the Bulls in '97. You can't be mad at Parish when he's one short of a full five ring set. There's no way Larry Legend felt good about this one in the slightest though.
