Kevin McHale typically has that look on his face, even when he's winning, because he is constantly suffering indignities. When he played on the Celtics back in the 80s, he had to suffer Larry Bird's shitty attitude towards him.

Meaning if the melting John Kerry wax-sculpture on the Houston Rockets bench doesn't get that team deep into the playoffs, he may never be remembered ever again. For anything. It'll all be THAT kid.
Maybe tonight, the Blazers could make FrankenKevin look a little more glummy by threatening Houston's playoff hopes, while bolstering their own (which, by the way, are still - SOMEHOW - alive. Barely.)
