You may not know, but Houston Rockets head coach Kevin McHale hasn’t been seen on the bench in a little over one month. McHale had taken off his coaching hat and replaced it with his “father” hat. McHale returned 2 weeks after his daughter passed away due to complications from Lupus. Alexandra “Sasha” McHale died on November 24th, at the age of 23 years old. Her father made his coaching return as the Rockets took on the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs beat Houston 116-109. The Rockets will wear a patch on their warm up shirts in the colors purple and green. Green being McHale’s daughter’s favorite color and purple for the color of the fight against Lupus. The players will wear a band of the same colors on their jerseys.

Wednesday’s answer: Red, green, orange, and white. The green was too similar to the Dolphins green, thus is was dropped in favor of the creamsicle colored jerseys.
