- Kevin McHale
Perhaps the most awkward looking player to ever play the game, Kevin McHale was a true throwback to an older age where fundamentals and intelligence won out over athletic ability.
McHale burst onto the scene as a rookie in 1981, backing up Larry Bird and Robert Parish and helping the Celtics win the title. The Celtics went on to win two more titles with McHale, who utilized a string of amazing low-post scoring moves, great outlet passing, excellent rebounding and underrated defensive skills.
McHale was a seven-time All Star, three-time All-Defensive first team, three-time All-Defensive second team and won two straight Sixth Man of the Year awards.
