Kevin McHale returned to coach the Rockets on Saturday, after being away from the team for an extended leave of absence due to the passing of his daughter a couple of weeks back.

Before tip-off, the Mavericks players lined up to individually greet, hug, and shake hands with McHale as a show of empathy for all that he’s been through.

Great, great moment.

    Awesome thing to watch. Great sportsmanship by the Mavs. All around tear jerking moment.

    Big time class. You can never show too much love in genuine moments of need.

    That is just pure class. It doesn’t get much better then that.

    Often times we complain out this era being “too soft” and we wish we had the bad blood rivalries like the 90’s but moments like this remind me why I love the NBA the way it is today.

    Classy move for an amazing player/coach
