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.


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?

Breaks my heart when people get hurt like this. Props to KG

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 haven't said this often, but KG is a class act.

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.

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


Was thinking the same thing watching this.

That was heart wrenching, not a fan of the unnecessary things KG does on the court, but that was classy and made me rethink my opinion on KG.

Yup, that was very hard to watch.

All the things they've gone through, I'm sure Garnett has spent alot of time around McHales daughter too, ever since she was just a little kid. Heartbreaking moment and respect to KG for showing love to McHale despite how their Minnesota time ended.

man, i'm tearing up here.
I feel so bad for coach McHale, he's always come across as a really nice guy, and regardless of the fact that I do like him, no parent should ever have bury their child.
I just feel terrible for him.

I lost my mother on the first of October. If you ever have a friend grieving like this, you have no idea how much a simple gesture such as a hug will mean to them. I'm sorry for your loss, McHale.

Very sorry for your loss, eagereyez. I hope you and McHale get the strength and comfort you need to get through to the other side of a dark time.
