From Santo Domingo to the N.B.A. Finals, Al Horford Is at Home​

Horford, the Boston Celtics center, is the first Dominican player in the N.B.A. finals. With the way he’s competing, it’s hard to tell he hasn’t been here before.

Al Horford encompasses everything you could ask for in a consummate pro.His greatest asset( in my opinion ) is one which there could never be a box score for...and that is maturity.The focus and leadership he is displaying in front of our eyes should be an example for every team not just in Bball but every team sport.His ability to keep his cool for not only himself but to and for the younger less experienced players is a throwback to a time when the NBA was fundamentals first.I have never been nor would ever be a Celts fan, but if Mr Horford were to win a ring I would would, for a brief moment, cheer for Boston.

If someday the DR should have Al come back and take on some sort of coaching and or mentorship role in National Bball, I think we're gonna see some more damn good Dominican NBA players.
