When former Celtics forward Cedric Maxwell bestowed the nickname, "The Chief," on Robert Parish, it was to acknowledge his attitude, which seemed unaffected by whatever was going on around him. Of course, looks can always be deceiving and as a Hall of Famer and member of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History (an honor given to him in 1996), Parish was effective in his own right. Dull, but effective.
