1) Robert Parish, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman

NBA legend Robert Parrish is synonymous with the Boston Celtics, but he actually played for several teams over his 21-year NBA career. That includes the Chicago Bulls as a veteran on a team led by Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

He didn't play a big role on the team, averaging just 9.3 minutes per game as the team's backup center in 43 regular-season games. Still, he got to play alongside Jordan, Pippen, and even Dennis Rodman during the 1996–97 season, the same year that they won 69 games.

That proved to be great for Parish, who got to play on an all-time great team en route to a fourth and final championship for the Chief after winning three as a member of the Celtics nearly a decade earlier. Parish's longevity allowed him to hang around long enough for him to join another contender and win another championship, making him one of the few players to have won four or more NBA championships since the 1960s.

Of course, Jordan and Pippen are also on that list, with each having won six championships as a member of the Bulls and Rodman winning five, two with the Detroit Pistons and three with Chicago. Ultimately, Parish played a minimal role on that Bulls team but he did play with more Hall of Famers than just Larry Bird and Kevin McHale.
