“Kevin Heaven”

Why are the Boston Celtics so interested in acquiring Minnesota Timberwolves sensation Kevin Love? Most likely, they think he can improve the team.

But there is another reason: the last five Celtics NBA championship teams have had a player named “Kevin” on the roster:

1976 — Kevin Stacom (a good backup guard who played hard every time he was on the court).

1981, 1984, and 1986 — Kevin McHale (Hall of Fame power forward: best low post moves ever and a devastating shot-blocker)

2008 — Kevin Garnett (one of the best players of his generation, future Hall of Famer, power forward).
