DID MCHALE INHALE? THATS WHAT MINNY NEEDS TO KNOW: MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE gossip C.J. has a hysterical Kevin McHale reacting to a sly implication by John Mellencamp that the TWolves GM smoked pot (well then, that would explain everything!).
In an interview with BLENDER magazine, the Indiana native Mellencamp said, “I’ve known Larry Bird since we were kids. When he was on the Celtics and I was playing in Boston he and Kevin McHale would come to my dressing room after the show and smoke me under the table.”
When Minny radio host Dan Barreiro ran with the comment on his show last week, McHale went beserk - off-the-air. The former Celtic lit into Barreiro after he signed off, and later turned down his offer to come on the show the next day. McHale also turned down a chance to clear the air with the Star-Tribune.
Barreiro also reports McHale denied smoking pot with the rocker, and that instead they were smoking cigars. Of course they were!
