From Boomer & Carton
Kevin McHale is all over the NBA playoffs, working as both a studio and in-game analyst for NBA TV and TNT. He’ll be calling tonight’s Blazers-Mavericks game in Dallas but he joined Boomer & Craig this morning to talk about the Knicks-Celtics series.
McHale, of course, is forever entrenched in Celtics lore, having been part of three championship teams during his 14 years in Boston. Right off the bat, Craig accused him of being biased to the green and white. McHale didn’t really deny it, but he did admit that the offensive foul called on Carmelo Anthony in the closing minute of Game 1 was indeed bogus.

He offered a little preview for tonight’s Game 2 as well as some thoughts on the rest of the NBA Playoffs, which have been highlighted by Derrick Rose, McHale’s MVP, and some great basketball including a shocking Game 1 win for Chris Paul and the New Orleans Hornets over Kobe Bryant and the defending Champion L.A.
