BOSTON -- Michael Jordan was known as MJ and His Airness. Julius Irving went by Dr. J. Other legends like Larry Bird and John Havlicek went by Larry Legend and Hondo. Kevin McHale? Well, he just went by Kevin McHale.
But don't let the lack of a nickname fool you. McHale was a great, no moniker necessary.
McHale played with one team for his entire 13-year career, the Boston Celtics. McHale would go down in history as one of the greatest Celtics ever, a prestigious honor considering the franchise's glorious history. McHale ranks in the top ten in 10 statistical categories in Celtics history, including points (17,335 points, ranks fifth), games (791, ranks second) and field goal percentage (.554 percent, ranks second).
