Kevin McHale Rumors
Steve Bulpett: Brad Stevens to Kevin McHale in the hallway after combined 44 turnovers in 89-80 loss to Philly: “I hope you found a way to make that sound interesting.” McHale, who worked the game for TNT, laughs and replies, “I didn’t.”
Did not getting Anthony hurt Houston or nah? The Rockets — okay, Chris Paul — wanted this done bad. It won’t hurt Houston in the regular season, when Paul and James Harden will dominate. And while Harden didn’t like Kevin McHale’s critique of his leadership, Mac was spot on. That doesn’t make “The Beard” a bad guy or teammate — people gravitate to their comfortable roles in life, and CP3 is a natural-born leader. Harden will, one thinks, be more comfortable with slightly less light on him. They’ll do fine playing together and off one another.
Kevin McHale continued his war of words with Houston Rockets star James Harden on Friday. The former Rockets coach-turned-TV analyst had fired the opening salvo last week by declaring that Harden is “not a leader.” Harden responded by calling McHale “a clown” and questioning his character.
