Kevin McHale Rumors
The Griz are also pursuing former Houston Rockets head coach J.B. Bickerstaff, who was the Rockets’ interim head coach after Kevin McHale was fired 11 games into the season. Memphis is said to be offering Bickerstaff $750,000. However, Bickerstaff is also being courted by the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Big Three are a Boston original, but Parish said their closeness was on the court. “Listen, there is no animosity and regret between the three of us,” Parish said. “Because you probably heard me say that Larry, Kevin, and I are not friends. We’re not. But there’s respect and admiration between us. And I say we are not friends because we didn’t hang out and go to dinner. We didn’t do that. But we are respectful and courteous towards each other, and what more can I ask for? And besides, I’m not an easy guy to get to know, anyway. “I’d be the first to say that I’m a distant individual. I have a tendency to come across as being aloof and dismissive. I think the best way to describe me is that I’m a loner. I prefer to be by myself.”
