Sometimes, in the midst of an especially negative season, the proverbial grass can really look greener in the NBA — particularly when backed up with a whole lot of green of another kind.
But there’s nowhere greener than the Boston Celtics for Al Horford after his journey led him first to the Philadelphia 76ers for a hefty paycheck but bad fit, and then to the Oklahoma City Thunder where he re-established his value in the league. Traded back to Boston with a new roster hopefully free of the angst that likely helped set the stage for his departure, the Florida product is excited to get back on the court for the Celtics.
Watch the video embedded below to hear his thoughts on a return to Boston, how he can help the team in its new phase of growth, and what he expects in the future with team reporter Amanda Pflugrad.
