Celtics legend Kevin McHale’s 23 year old daughter Sasha McHale died from an ongoing battle with Lupis this last weekend. The loss is tragic and sad, but perhaps that goes without saying.

The Houston Rockets are standing behind their coach. They wore green bands on the shoulder of their jerseys tonight in their rout of the Toronto Raptors.

McHale may not return to the sidelines for a while, and that’s totally understandable. No one wants to lose their child, and even if McHale anticipated this loss, it doesn’t make it any easier.

Celtics nation mourns tonight, as does the entire NBA, as an All-Time great just lost his precious daughter. May she be in the prayers and thoughts of all of us.
