Hall of Famer Kevin McHale spotted at Trump rally in Minnesota
Donald Trump has a Hall of Famer on his side.
Trump held a rally in Duluth, Minn. on Wednesday, and there was one attendee who stood out from the rest — literally. Basketball Hall of Famer Kevin McHale was spotted in attendance, and he was in quite close range to the president.

McHale’s wife is a vocal supporter of Trump but deleted her Twitter account after the photo of her husband at the rally began to circulate.
McHale’s support of Trump comes at a time when the president is under fire for leading a highly controversial border patrol policy that many deem unethical. That was among the subjects the president addressed at his rally.
McHale, who is from Minnesota and went to college at the University of Minnesota, was a seven-time All-Star for the Boston Celtics. He has worked in the NBA as a front office executive. He also served as the head coach of the Timberwolves and most recently, the Rockets.
McHale was involved in a beef with his former player James Harden last year.
