Thunder’s Al Horford Opens up About Frustrating Sixers Stint

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

“We just weren’t jelling. We weren’t meshing. And obviously, we had a lot of big guys out there in particular out playing, and it just wasn’t fitting.”

With the Sixers, Horford had one of the least productive seasons of his career. As the Sixers relied on his three-point shooting more than they probably should’ve, Horford drained below his career three-point percentage while averaging a career-high of three-point attempts-per-game. “I’ve always known that I’m able to play. I know that I can play at a high level. That’s never been an issue for me.”

Although 67 games is a small sample size, the Sixers’ revamped front office saw and knew enough to accept that Horford would not pan out long-term for the Sixers.

Although we’re only halfway through the 2020-2021 NBA season, it’s absolutely safe to say that the breakup between Horford and the 76ers worked out well for both parties.
