The Definition of Rent Free: Al Horford’s siblings still talking about Philadelphia
The 76ers traded Al Horford after just one season with the team because he was absolutely terrible playing basketball during his time in Philadelphia.
Horford averaged just 12 points per game during his lone season in Philly and put up one of the worst field goal percentages of his career, all while costing the 76ers organization $28 million. He was miserable.
Obviously, for those watching the NBA Finals between the Celtics and Golden State Warriors, Horford has been revitalized since his return to Boston.
Horford’s family, who are absolute psychopaths that live off their brother, spoke with The Athletic this in a recent article about Horford’s return to Boston. Why anyone would want to interview his siblings is beyond me, but of course, when given the opportunity, all three of Al’s siblings took turns taking shots at Philadelphia.
Al Horford’s Siblings on Philadelphia
“‘I tell people I think we fully manifested his return to Boston because we all wanted it so badly. We kind of put that out there,’ Anna said. ‘Al has alluded to that, as well. He always was homesick for Boston when he was in Philly and when he was in Oklahoma. Somehow, the stars aligned, and we got back here, and it just worked out perfectly.’
“‘We stayed Celtics fans when he was in Philly and when he was in OKC. We couldn’t let go,’ Maria said. ‘They showed us so much love, and that wasn’t something we were ready to let go of, so we just never did. And we’re back!’
“‘Philly fans hated us there,’ Anna added. ‘They hated us for it.’
“‘We continued to root for Boston, because they’re not dickheads,’ said Josh.”
Cool. You’re all a bunch of weirdos. Talk about living “rent free” in the Horford family. Coincidentally, that’s also something they all do on the back of their brother’s success so maybe we can all find some common ground there right?
Al Horford was awful here in Philadelphia and fans rightfully expressed their frustrations with him during his time here but we know that already. Honestly, whatever. I could care less about Al Horford and I definitely don’t care about his family.
Have a good time in Boston you dorks.
