    The 'K.C.' does not stand for anything, it is his full name.
    He was so shy that Bill Russell claimed that Jones did not say a word to him the first month that they roomed together in college.
    Initially, instead of going to the NBA, he signed with the NFL's Los Angeles Rams, quitting after suffereing a leg injury during the preseason.
    He had less than stellar career shooting percentages of .387 from the field and .632 from the free throw line.
    Critics suggested that his laid-back coaching style worked only because he had players like Larry Bird, Robert Parish and Kevin McHale, who could essentially coach themselves.
    He was a member of the US Olympic basketball team that won gold at Melbourne (1956).
    As a player, he was valued for his tenacious defense.
    He was the first NBA coach with four 60-victory seasons and the first to win 60 games with two different teams.
    New Jersey Nets coach Dave Wohl said, 'The hard thing about coaching a great team is not overcoaching. K.C. knows when to call a timeout and when to call a play or let the guys play.'
    Larry Bird said, 'He's the kind of person I'd like to be, but I don't have the time to work at it.'
