Displayed is a Boston Celtic Kevin McHale game used jersey. McHale, who played all of his 13 NBA seasons with the Boston Celtics, was a part of what many consider the best front line ever in the NBA. That frontcourt was composed of all future Hall of Famers: Larry Bird at small forward, Kevin McHale at power forward, and Robert Parrish at center. McHale started his pro career as a sixth man, playing forward as a sub for both Cedric Maxwell and Larry Bird. He won two NBA Sixth Man of the Year Awards. After Maxwell left the Celtics, McHale became a starter at power forward. At 6'10", he presented match-up problems for other teams as McHale was unusually mobile for his height. McHale was a major part of three Celtic championship teams. He was a 7-time All-Star, and a 6-time member of the All-Defensive Team. McHale averaged 17.9 PPG and 7.3 TRB for his career. But it wasn't all about stats for him. McHale said that the key to the Celtics success was a philosophy of "It's we before me.", the Celtic tradition of team basketball. The mesh jersey has two tags on the lower left front tail. One Champions manufacturers' tag reads"1991 and shows a body length of "+3". The adjacent Champions tag gives washing instructions and shows size "46". The front has "CELTICS" in green block letters and under the team's name is "32" in green numerals. The top of the left chest has the NBA Logo Man. On the back is "McHale" in green block letters and "32" in green numerals. jersey shows light wear, and it is in excellent condition. McHale won three NBA Championships when he was on the Celtics, and so this jersey is a great symbol of some of the Boston Celtics' most glorious days.
