Anna Horford Finds It Strange That Sixers Benched Brother Al Horford.
Anna Horford, joined The Bell Ringer Podcast to preview the Sixers-Celtics series and she had a few thoughts on the situation with her brother, she said.
“Hopefully, you’ll see more of Al. I thought that it was a really strange move for Brett Brown to bench Al. He’s not started ever in his entire career and I understand that they wanted the bench to have to come in strongly so they added Al to the bench. I think that there have been some questionable choices on how they’re using him. Al is a major playoff player. He’s not made the playoffs his entire career and everyone knows that’s when he shines. So it’s like steady, steady throughout the season, but then the playoffs come around and he turns into playoff Al. He’s on a different level, essentially and Philly should know that better than anybody because he gave them a really hard time in the playoffs.”
Off the court, Sixers fans quickly grew impatient from the jump. And things, according to Anna, never really improved.
Horford laughed “I don’t have the strongest relationship, I suppose, with Philly fans,” and added, “I think they’re really, really put off by the fact that I don’t publically criticize Boston and I still like to see everyone thrive on that team. I still like tweets about how well the guys are doing and stuff but you can’t blame me for that, I know them.”
Anna then said “It was three amazing seasons (in Boston) and the city embraced our family so I think that they do take that the wrong way and that they would kind of just like to see me drop the Celtics completely. But, you know, I’m not going to do that just because a bunch of people that I don’t know wants me to.”
She is the daughter of Tito Horford (Father) and Arelis Reynoso (Mother), she has four brothers Al Horford, Josh, Jon and Christian, and one sister named Maria.
