The only Boston Celtics player with more rings than Bill Russell — counting his NBA championships as an assistant and head coach along with those won as a player at 12 overall — K.C. Jones joins Russell as among the winningest athletes to ever play one of the major North American sports.

But Jones was also known for his unflappable personality, exemplary demeanor, and calm, focused class as well. In fact, it was this side of Jones that legendary Celtics big man Robert Parish most admired, and even modeled his own career after having played under the iconic Boston coach for many years.

Watch the clip embedded below put together via our friends at CLNS Media where Parish shares his thoughts on his former coach and friend, and how he feels Jones influenced his own life as a role model.
