Kevin started to get known for his basketball skills while attending Hibbing High School, where he helped the team to a runner-up finish in the AA Minnesota State Championship game. After matriculating, he attended the University of Minnesota where he played for four years and was selected as the top player in university history for men’s basketball.
He entered the 1980 NBA draft and was selected as the third pick overall by the Boston Celtics. He signed a three-year contract, joining players such as Cedric Maxwell and Larry Bird on the team. He would make an impact during his first year, becoming one of the top rookies from his draft, which peaked in an NBA play-offs win against the Houston Rockets, in which Kevin played a big role. For the next two seasons, Boston struggled to get to the NBA finals, and then McHale became a free agent. He was chased by the New York Knicks but eventually re-signed with Boston once again, and was given a $1 million per season contract, considered one of the highest contracts during his time. His net worth would start to increase significantly from this point.
Kevin would become a sixth man for the Celtics and would help the team’s run to get their 15th championship against the Los Angeles Lakers. The following season he would make a total of 98 points in consecutive games, earning himself a franchise record. They would go on to win another NBA championship, and the team of the 1985 to 1986 season would be considered one of the strongest in basketball history. The following year, Kevin would become a starter, and average above 20 points per game. They would set a record of 67-15 with a 50-1 record at home. Despite injuries that season, McHale would return in the playoffs to help the Celtics win another championship, against the Houston Rockets.
In the middle of his playing career, Kevin had become one of the best offensive players in the game, setting career highs in both rebounds and points. In March 1987 he received an injury that doctors warned could be career-ending. He played through it and helped the team get a conference final win, but eventually lost in the NBA finals against the LA Lakers. After head coach KC Jones retirement, the strong Celtics team would have difficulty winning an NBA championship. After a loss in the 1992 to 1993 season against Charlotte during the playoffs, McHale announced his retirement.
After retirement, Kevin became a part of the Minnesota Timberwolves in various roles, before becoming the team’s head coach. He was the head coach until 2009 and then he became a television analyst. Recently, he has been hired to become the head coach of the Houston Rockets, which he coaches today.
For his personal life, Kevin has been married to Lynn since 1982, and they have five children, but one of whom perished due to lupus.
