    Howard for Horford was a real bad move by the Hawks

    29

    hawks wanted rebounds. that nigga horford averaged 4 rebounds a game lol

    Actually 7, but I get the point. At least he's not as bad as Brook Lopez who gets 5 per game

    that was a joke he obviously didn't average 4 reb a game. but im sayin that if you want rebounds you don't want horford as your starting center

    Definitely. I don't get how someone can be 6'10 and 250lbs and not be a consistent rebounder.

    1

    No we didn't have a choice. No GM with more than shit for brains would ever "choose" Howard over Horford.

    Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"? I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.

    nah, horford in the reg season was kinda ass

    It depends on what play style teams prefer. Horford gives you playmaking, offensive prowess, shooting range, and versatility, but Dwight gives you rebounds, blocks, inside presence, and good screen-setting. It's whatever your team is set up to play like.

    3

    it honestly was, the Hawks could have been something to watch rn, look how he is putting up near triple-doubles night in, night out

    13

    Nah they did the right decision switch for dwight
    Dwight in the minutes he plays according to defensive analitics is incredibly effective
    But the contract he is signed to is dumb stupid especially if your not gonna play him when he should

    they actually tried to pair dwight and horford and get rid of millsap but horford left

    Yeah, but Millsap just went to his first All Star game.

    ik but that was last summer before that. But yeah Millsap had a nice season.

    I think they gave him up because they couldn't find his hairline

    0

    They didn't get Dwight for Horford, my team plan was for him to stay so we could have 2 good big men and Millsap at the 3 with Korver and schroder. If that was the case then Horford would be in Houston but he wanted omoney but we offered him more money than boston did smh

    That wasn't even a ove, they were both separate signings

    0

    We wanted to re-sign Horford. We even offered in the offseason to trade Millsap to be able to sign both him and Howard but he declined and signed with Boston anyways.

    This card looks like a Amy Marc Gasol.

    Al Horford is one of those players that is called 'overrated' because he doesn't score 20 a game, but this guy leads the league in assists per game as a center. He brings the ball up when Isaiah is having trouble. He stretches the floor. He is a solid rebounder, gets his fair share of blocks, not to mention, when the Celtics need a basket, he just finds himself wide open. Last night the Wizards cut it to 4 early in the 4th, and he hit a huge 3. This man is not overrated, he just doesn't score 20 a game.

    2

    "solid rebounder" lmaoooooooooo

    He is a solid rebounder... 8 a game is fine.

    6.8 RPG is not fine whatsoever for a "star" center. You know the main reason why the Hawks got swept 2 years in a row by the Cavs? It wasn't just LeBron. It was Horford getting absolutely annihilated on the boards by Tristian Thompson and really all of the Cavs bigs. When the other team gets 20+ offensive boards a game, that leads to a lot of wide open shots on kick-outs, which is why the Cavs broke the playoff single game three point record

    0

    Horford is a great player but he is a bad rebounder, no way around it. He's getting his rebounds by sheer amount of his minutes and general lack of rebounding overall for the Celtics. No player on the Celtics is a good rebounder except for Avery Bradley. The biggest Celtics weakness by far is rebounding, they are tied for fourth worst in the league as a team and no player comes near to averaging 10 per game. So Horford gets his boards mostly because there's close to no one else to grab them.

    This card is probably better than the DeAndre Jordan one they just released.

    -13

    When you get paid $26.5 million a year you better score 20 points a game. And when you are the highest paid center in the league you shouldn't be the guy who gets his chance when other players are struggling, you should be taking over games. Al Horford sucks and is overpaid.

    6

    Not every player with a big contract should put up 25 ppg. Teams give those contracts according to their needs, so actually Horford is a good pick up as he can be the third wheel in a big three that may be formed in the summer

    3

    The Celtics are built around players playing their roles. Horford does that.

    When your building a team to match up and beat small ball lineups like Cleveland (Tristan Thompson) and Golden State (Draymond Green) you do not go after players like Howard, Whiteside and Drummond. If you want to exploit the small ball lineup that's a different story but clearly at this point Danny Ainge is trying to match up. That said, who is better than Horford not named Karl Anthony-Towns? If you haven't seen Boston play they have a guy who takes over ...

    Al Horford is honestly the type of Player that many of us are gonna tend to forget, then when he is retired and all and the Hall Of Fame comes around we are gonna look back at his career and say man this guy deserved a nomination. Now im not saying he will be in the HOF because IDK about that but he should at least be in some discussion, I mean 4x all star games aint bad especially in the NBA HOF considering the are guys with single All Star appearances in it.

    Horford gets paid $26.5 million a year and is the highest paid center. He should be averaging at least 25 points a game instead of 14, not to mention his horrendous rebounding.

    1

    L no he's putting up near trip-dub every night and he can stretch the floor witch is what the celtics wanted

    -4

    Shut up fag

    2

    Al doesn't need to average 20 PPG because he has this guy named Isaiah Thomas who is averaging 25 PPg in the postseason and averaged nearly 30 PPG in the regular season. Al Horford is averaging 7 APG in the playoffs and Boston is winning.

    1

    So shut yo ratchet ass up and stop talking trash unless you know ur facts broski. And btw I'm a Knicks fan and I have respect for the Celtics, especially IT and Al horford.

    -4

    Shut up bitch. You don't know shit about basketball. The celtics are only winning because of IT. While Horford is a top passing center, the celtics need rebounding and when you make someone the highest paid center in the league they better be able to do everything, which Horford can't do. He is a bust.

    4

    No you have it all wrong. The reason Boston paid him that money is cuz they know that they need an older player to take em far cuz experience is vaulable on a team like Boston that has hella teens (In NBA years) on the team that have no playoff experience. He plays good defense and grabs some rebounds. He can also stretch the floor and he plays point sometimes when IT and AB are in trouble. He's also useful to Jaylen Brown and the player that Boston will select in the draft cuz he's older. He also puts up near triple doubles a night. Danny A knew what he was doing the entire time and he's been exactly what Boston wanted.

    -2

    They signed him because they wanted to increase their chances of getting KD, without KD involved the celtics may still have had horford but definetely not for as much money. He is still a good player and the celtics are better with him, but he doesn't deserve anywhere near what he is being payed.

    read the comment that @KiddCardoso put u idiot

    They should think More realisitc like using the draft pick and signing someone like Melo to take the role of a 6th man

    they should trade the bkn pick for kristaps if the knicks agree(sry i know u a knicks fan but kristaps doesnt like the management)

    1

    As a Knicks fan I'd say no but someoneI like the idea. Lauri Markkanen would be a perfect fit for Boston because he's basically Kp 2.0. And since he's not great on D someone like Horford can help him along and Boston has a crazy amount defensive players that can play good offense.

    1

    but we know porz can play we dont know if this kid can pay in the nba

    1

    Imagine Markkanen as Dirk basically. Crafty offensive player with not good d which is why boston is good for him and he is good for boston. Boston can just surrounder him with 2 way players

    0

    yes ok that works but he's not a #1-4 pick is he? i dont watch much college bball

    0

    like #5-10. he still solid but his d may take some time.

    0

    ok then the c's should trade down and get another role player?

    0

    trade down is what they should do but they also need a top 10 player. so it all depends who they draft and who they trade that player for. Likely C's my draft Jackson, Fultz or Ball. Jackson is the most realistic out of the 3 but Markkanen makes the most sense Jackson has more of a guard style of play and isn't strong enough to play the 4.

    0

    they should get jackson or trade for butler, etc...

    0

    its really confusing how it works there are endless possibilities. Like trading for Melo to be the scorer off the bench and then whoever they pick and then if PG or Jimmy decide to opt out and the that would require Jae to leave its just a lot of stuff that moves around and a lot that could happen. its all gonna depend on who they draft and where they finish in the playoffs

    0

    Yea they tried to force it with KD and that's why Horford is overpaid

    0

    and boston isn't getitng KD, don't even bring him up.

    L wrong he is being payed exactly what ainge wanted to pay him

    LMFAO wrong wrong wrong
    they wouldn't have won against the bulls if horford couldnt stretch the floor because then lopez wouldve gotten 50 rebounds you are so fucking wrong
    when you have a center who can space and shoot and pass you don't necessarily need rebounding

    0

    Who is supposed to get the rebounds if your center doesn't lol. The only thing Horford has going for him is his ability to space the floor because he sucks inside.

    2

    all of their guards? i assume you dont watch the celtics at all judging by ur comments

    I do watch the celtics lol. Having your guards get your rebounds isn't a good thing.

    as long as they get rebounds it aint matter lol

    0

    It does matter because guards can't get a lot of rebounds. Lol this is why the celtics can't rebound

    well thats why they played stretch with gerald in the bulls series to get back the points they lost on the defensive glass

    0

    have you been watching at all

    1

    Boston has a slew of players that can do other things. Keep in mind Al has a Point that can shoot now and he has a good 2 and 3. Also he has a good coach and a young and talented Jaylen Brown who can do a little bit of everything.

    2

    jaylen will be a superstar watch

    2

    Thomas, bust is when you are signed with very high expectations and didnt come close to meeting them. Al was only signed for 26.5mil in the first place because the salary cap this year sky-rocketed and so its not as much as u think but horford was signed to come in here as a veteran and be a leader, play defense, and fit in the rotation and contribute which is exactly what he's done, numbers arent everything, the celtics probly wuldnt be as successful if Al went out there everyday and tried to score 30 which he prob could but IT already does that and it wouldnt be beneficial and unnecessary

    2
    -2

    Ok you are a fag jaylen. You are making me waste my time so these fags on this fucking website don't think I am full of shit. The celtics forced it with Horford and gave him a massive contract because they wanted KD. If the celtics wanted a veteran there are plenty of players they could sign for the veteran minimum. He has played well but def could not score 30. Horford really isn't good enough to be the second best player on a contender (one of the reasons why the celtics aren't a contender). He would fit well as the third best player in a big 3.

    but that's not the point

    I would be very disappointed in the Celtics management if this is what the celtics expected from Horford

    0

    it is. no C's fan is mad they are happy. Horford is the second to last piece to winning a chip. thats why they are the #1 team in the east

    I am a celtics fan and I am not happy. Horfords contract keeps him on the team until he is 36. You could argue that he deserves the contract with his current play but he is not going to get better with age and the celtics have him for a long time being paid a massive amount of money

    look at Tim Duncan, he got better with age and his experience won him an NBA championship with the kawhi. The Spurs also had great management and they knew what they were doing. Same thing with Boston. You shoudl praise the lord cuz you guys put in all the hard work and took the time.

    but you guys have everything going in your favor. u have 2 more Brooklyn picks, a steal in IT, and the poss the best management in the nba. how could you not be happy.






    Oh and if i didn't mention you guys are the #1 team in the east, finishing AHEAD OF THE LAND

    I could produce something worth more than he is from the inside of my asshole. I could take my shit outta the toilet, put it in the NBA, and the thing would still moss more people than Horford.

    He played alright this season, but yea I wouldn't want his contract. He is into his 30's now and I see the decline coming fast. He will be make 30 mil a year on the backside of his deal and his defense and rebounding is only getting worse. He actually averaged a career low in rebounds this season. Defense and rebounding is probably the Celtics biggest need.

    Al Horford is like the average center getting over payed like crazy

    Hes overpaid but the celtics needed him and they wouldn't be in the same position without him

    Even if you argue he's mediocre in terms of total skills, but he's not average. He's a much better passer and shooter than your average center, and isn't as good at rebounding or shot blocking
