Coach Kevin McHale of the Houston Rockets is a part of the Rockets Family. It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this today because of the recent news that he has lost his twenty three year old daughter, Sasha. From everyone here at Space City Scoop we would like to extend our condolences and support for his family and for those that are close to them.
Basketball is a wonderful game that we all can enjoy, but life is something much more precious than any sport. We hope that the McHale’s and the team can all be strong for each other at this time and try to remember all the wonderful moments that have been spent together and not the hurt that a loss can cause.
The associated press reported that team owner Leslie Alexander said in a statement that he extends his “deepest condolences” over the loss of the McHales’ “beautiful daughter.” He called Kevin and wife Lynn “loving and dedicated parents who will need our continued support throughout this very difficult time.” He said the “entire organization is mourning.” Players James Harden and Chandler Parsons also expressed their support for their coach via tweets and I know we all as fans would like to do the same.
