The Sixers have an Al Horford problem


Article Summary:

It is hard to shake the feeling of dread watching Al Horford play basketball for the Sixers right now.

These are not what I would consider “Best efforts”:

These are not the only examples of Horford’s woeful start to the road trip, and if these plays were made by Jahlil Okafor during the year the Sixers went 10-72, they would have been presented as proof of Philadelphia’s toxic losing culture and evidence that they were doomed to fail. Horford missed a pair of games in mid-December with what the team called left knee soreness and hamstring tightness, and when he returned to play against the Brooklyn Nets on December 15, many assumed those issues were to blame for him looking glued to the floor in that meeting. Horford is neither – he is a very good, sub-elite player for most of his career who is expected to play a significant role as he declines, both because of his $100 million contract and the past production that inspired you to give him that deal in the first place.
