Al Horford on first NBA Finals experience vs. Warriors

Despite being in the league for 15 years, Boston Celtics veteran Al Horford is playing in his first-ever NBA Finals. It was an unforgettable experience for the five-time All-Star and at this point Horford just takes it all in.

At media availability on Monday, the Celtics big man spoke about what his experience was like during this final. According to Horford, it was quite a ride:

“You have to enjoy those moments,” Horford said via NBA on twitter. “I’ve enjoyed it since day one we first came out here in San Francisco. So really take it all in, just enjoy the time with the guys and make the most of it.”

The Celtics center shared that it was a remarkable journey for his family as well. Horford also sent a special shout out to his homeland, the Dominican Republic, which has been very supportive of Boston’s title run this season.

However, despite his admission, Horford is not here to just enjoy the moment. It was all well and good, but there’s no doubt Horford will do whatever it takes to help his Celtics win the NBA title. They are now just two wins away from a championship and Al Horford is keeping it all on the ground.
