Al Horford is a member of the reigning Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics. He was selected third overall in the first round of the 2007 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks. After ten seasons with Atlanta, he signed with Boston for three seasons, Philadelphia for one season and then to Oklahoma City for one season before returning to the Celtics in a trade prior to the 2021-22 season.
In the 2022 playoffs, Horford helped lead the Celtics to their first NBA Finals appearance in over a decade. In Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Milwaukee Bucks, he had a playoff career-high 30 points and helped the Celtics to a 116-108 win to even the series 2-2. In the final game of the NBA season, Game 6 of the Finals, Horford had 19 points and 14 rebounds in a Celtics loss to the Warriors.
On today's podcast, we talk to Al Horford about his journey of faith, the excitement he has for the upcoming NBA season, the lessons learned from his father Tito, and the importance of talking about Christ publicly to others.
