McHale's style helps, hinders Wolves

Kevin McHale is on the job again, sprung early from his NBA-enforced "leave of absence" and back just in time to face the things he dislikes most about his role as the Timberwolves vice president of basketball operations. Schmoozing agents. Recruiting free agents. Working the phones until his ear sweats. Countering offers. Negotiating contracts. All are necessary skills for a man in his position, none are McHale's favorite things to do. Which...

Yet he didn't know until now how the New York Times identified the...

 Step aside, Boston Celtics past and present. For one day, it was time to make way for Kevin McHale."After a while, you start getting a feeling you can't be stopped," McHale said Sunday. He had just set a club record with 56 points as Boston beat the Detroit Pistons, 138-129, in National Basketball Association action in Boston.
