Al Horford (Dominican Republic)
Al Horford isn’t anywhere near as flashy as Sabonis or Jokic, but he sure is good at basketball. The understated Horford does a little bit of everything. He’s a smart player that makes great passes, rebounds, shoots, and plays strong defense.
That helped Horford lead the Florida Gators to back-to-back national championships, the last college team to do so, and it’s helped Horford to five All-Star seasons with the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics, plus once each on the All-NBA and All-Defense teams. Horford has become a beacon of consistency and one of the game’s best playoff big men.
