    It's about damn time Coach got the props he deserves.................

    Coach From the North Country

    Kevin McHale

    Kirk Goldsberry: Bob Dylan was born in Duluth, Minnesota, around this time of year in 1941, and raised in the tiny little iron-mining town of Hibbing. Nobody cares. Kevin McHale grew up there, too, and he’s way more important now. Anyone who can turn Josh Smith into a pivotal player on an NBA conference finalist immediately becomes more transcendent than some fella who simply revolutionized popular music.

    Coaching reputations are stubborn things — just ask pre-Ubuntu Doc Rivers. And maybe it’s time we reconsider the idea that McHale is anything less than a really good NBA coach. He went electric in this series, leading a seemingly mismatched lineup to a huge comeback win against a star-studded opponent, one that was led by one of the top three coaches in the league.

    I mean, how many roads does a McHale have to walk down before we call him a really good coach?

    Ops note: Go to Link to read the Coaching Excellence Check List, and see one of the best McHale pictures ever...


    The other dude from Hibbing will always have Blood on the Tracks and Blonde on Blonde, but those ordinary artifacts are nothing compared to the masterpiece McHale just recorded.

    On Prigs, "It’s some supernatural X-Files ****, where opponents don’t see him lurking there, like his flesh is camouflaged into a parquet pattern. In the Rockets’ Game 7 triumph, Prigioni practiced his dark arts again, snaking away a couple inbounds passes that led to critical buckets."
