    Just awful if true. I'll hold out hope till I hear from the Rockets for Kevin's sake.

    Regardless, everyone should say a prayer (or send some good thoughts) Kevin's way as I will most certainly do.

    What could possibly be worse than losing a child? My deepest sympathy for Coach McHale and his family. Just terrible news.

    Terrible news, I really feel for the McHale family. My mother always tells me that her biggest fear is having to bury one of her children (me or my sister). 22 is way too young to go, R.I.P.

    If that really is her twitter, her last tweet was

    @SashaMcHale Let's go rockets!!! #rednation #clutchcity
