Not soon after Kevin Garnett was traded to the Boston Celtics, one person emailed the Boston Globe and said, "The Celtics ought to retire Kevin McHale's number again." McHale had just traded to Boston the greatest player in Minnesota history and one of the greatest in NBA history. Wrote Tom Powers of the St. Paul Pioneer Press (in Minnesota), "The sun will come up again tomorrow. Unless, of course, Kevin McHale is somehow put in charge of the solar system. In which case the sun will implode and we... will all die."
The Black Hole of Boston should be given his fourth championship ring.
