K.C. Jones
Jones was a defensive standout with the fabled Celtics dynasty of the late 1950s and 1960s. Serving first as a reserve and then as the heir to Bob Cousy at point guard, Jones won championships in the first eight seasons of his nine-year career. He contributed mightily to the Celtics by running the offense, ball-hawking, and wallpapering himself to opposing teams' star guards. After retiring, Jones continued his winning ways as a coach with six teams, employing a low-key, laissez-faire approach that won seven division titles, five Eastern Conference titles and two championships. more...
