Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The folks at Cheers challenge their rivals at Gary's Olde Towne Tap to a grudge basketball game. When Sam (Ted Danson) finds out that Gary plans to cheat his way to victory, he brings in a ringer: Cheers' temporary bartender (and full-time Boston Celtic) Kevin McHale. But McHale will agree to play only on a very special condition. This episode was dedicated to Cheers casting director and AIDs activist Stephen Kolzak, who died September 19, 1990.
