As a player with the Celtics from 1956-66, K.C. Jones won eight NBA championships. As coach of the team from 1983-88, he won two rings, and led his team to the finals four times.

Jones has always been a winner: He played with Bill Russell at the University of San Francisco, claiming NCAA championships in 1955 and '56, earned a gold medal at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, and won induction into the NBA Hall of Fame in 1989. (Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images)
