Some people consider Al Horford’s post-up game to be boring; he doesn’t do anything flashy.  However, once he puts up a shot from down low, there is a good chance it is going in.

Since Horford entered the league, he has made improvements in scoring and rebounding each season (with the exception of the 2011-12 season, when he was injured).  He is a solid starting center in the league and would be a great piece on a championship team.

Horford is an All-Star, and he signed a five-year, $60 million contract in 2010.  Although he is not flashy, everyone in the NBA knows how valuable he is.
