Kevin McHale: We Need a Mind Shift

Mind games: When McHale succeeded Randy Wittman as coach on Monday, he said one of his first goals was upping the tempo on offense.

For that to happen, he said, the players need to undergo a "mind shift."

"The X’s and O’s are easy," McHale said. "I can draw up all kinds of stuff. It’s getting the guys to play a little bit faster and (with) a little bit more pace. That takes a little bit of time."
