Very sad - I can really sympathize as I have had personal loss as well

KG knows him well, too...

High res picture. I can only imagine the encouraging and emotional words Kevin shared with him. And I don't think I want to. It should stay between them two.

I was watching some of the coverage of the school shooting before this. I haven't teared up like this in a long long time.

Friday, December 14, 2012 has become one of the most depressing days for me as a person, God rest the souls and families affected in the CT shooting, and welcome back Kevin McHale may your daughter R.I.P.

No man want to be seen crying in public. Give him some personal space.


This. That cameraman was a disgrace, shining the camera light up into his face as he was grieving entering the tunnel. Disrespectful as hell, acting like paparazzi.

Great show of respect from KG. He gets a lot of hate but this was good on him.

Was this the worst attempt at countering a statement ever?

So apparently you take my comment out of context (what was SAID between them two is what I stated should be kept between them) and then try and direct it towards me posting a screen cap of their hug in front of millions of people on live television?

Just sheds light on how difficult it is every day for people in these types of situations. Takes an inordinate amount of strength to cope with the loss of a child. Wouldn't wish it on anyone and too many have to face the very same challenge after today.

I feel so bad for McHale. KG knew what he had to do as his friend. :(

Those 2 guys were each big parts of the other's life.
