Larry Bird respects Kevin McHale too much to hire him as Pacers coach.
After Pacers team president Larry Bird made the controversial decision regarding not to renew the contract of his head coach Frank Vogel. People were projecting about him on bringing his former Boston Celtics teammate Kevin McHale for the position.
SO if you are among those who are wondering about the position turning to Kevin McHale, then it is the time you wake up from your dream because it is highly unlikely to happen.
Actually, according to Larry Bird, he respects Kevin McHale too much to hire him as Pacers coach. SO it is not going to happen.
“I would not do that to Kevin, have him work for me. That’s just not fair,” Bird told reporters in Indiana. “I respect the man too much and we’ve been through too many battles together to bring him in here and be my coach. “I would love for him to be my coach, but it ain’t gonna happen.”
So it is vivid now, Bird ‘would love for him to be his coach,’ but he respects McHale ‘too much’ to put him in that position.
Here is a tweet:
Bird on Kevin McHale: "I would love for him to be my coach but it’s not going to happen because of our relationship."
