Should the Boston Celtics be worried about Al Horford?

Ahead of the Boston Celtics’ 2023-24 campaign in the pursuit of the 2024 NBA title, some league analysts are concerned about how well veteran big man Al Horford will play this coming season. With the Florida alum now entering into his age 37 season after showing the first real signs of father time impacting his game during Boston’s 2022-23 campaign, it’s a legitimate concern for a ball club with designs on a banner.

Will Horford hold up to another season of heavy minutes? Or should he be in bubble wrap until the playoffs, playing as little as the Celtics can get away with? And when the postseason finally arrives in April, can we count on the Dominican big man’s body to be ready?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” took a deep dive into the Godfather’s potential for the season soon to arrive.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear their thoughts on concerns over Horford’s age.
