Watch: Kevin McHale caught calling someone ‘dickhead’ on hot mic
One of the first rules of broadcasting is to always be careful whenever a microphone is around. Kevin McHale forgot about that lesson.
During Tuesday’s “Players Only” broadcast of the Boston Celtics-Philadelphia 76ers game on TNT, McHale was heard calling someone a “dickhead” as the telecast came back from a break.

It’s unclear about whom McHale was speaking, but it was pretty obvious he thought he was off-air at the time.
The “Players Only” is consistently one of the worst broadcasts in sports. The lack of cohesion and direction makes their games nearly unwatchable. Perhaps this was an attempt to spice things up!
