Kevin was drafted by the Celtics in the 1980 NBA draft as a third overall pick and didn't have an immediate impact the way Magic Johnson had, for example, for the Lakers. He was always a great player to be with and he was progressing fast and eventually he was named twice, sixth man of the year. Kevin McHale led the seasons, 1987 and 1988 in field goal percentage (60.4). Because of his long arms, McHale was a tough defensive force to tackle, as well as on the other side of the court. Defensively, he was three times in the NBA All-Defensive First Team and three times in the NBA All-Defensive Second Team. Kevin McHale has hand signed this Spalding NBA Indoor/Outdoor Basketball.
