Celtics vet Al Horford sounds off on first NBA Finals experience vs. Warriors
Despite being in the league for 15 years now, Boston Celtics veteran Al Horford is playing in his first-ever NBA Finals. It’s been an unforgettable experience for the five-time All-Star and at this point, Horford is just taking it all in.
On media availability on Monday, the Celtics big man spoke out about how his experience has been throughout this Finals. According to Horford, it’s been quite a ride:
“You have to enjoy these moments,” Horford said, via NBA on Twitter. “I’ve enjoyed since the first day that we got out here in San Francisco the first time. So, really taking it all in, just enjoying this time with the guys and making the most of it.”

The Celtics center shared how it’s also been a remarkable journey for his family. Horford also sent a special shoutout to his home nation of the Dominican Republic, which has been very supportive of Boston’s title run this season.
Despite his admission, however, Horford isn’t here to just enjoy the moment. It’s all been well and good, but there’s no doubt that Horford will do everything he can to help his Celtics win the NBA title. They are now just two wins away from a championship and Al Horford is leaving everything on the floor.
