7. Al Horford, Atlanta Hawks

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.

    Hey retard, Iguodala isn’t on the Nuggets anymore

    • Mike Dill

      Where did I insinuate that he is still on the Nuggets? I opened his slide with “Warriors fans will be happy” because he is a Warrior now.

      • ScHoolboy Drew

        The title of the slide was originally “Andre Iguodala, Denver Nuggets” you just put off replying to me until you fixed it.

        • Mike Dill

          I did no such thing. I didn’t even put the team names in the slide titles. Our editor must have added them just in case readers were unfamiliar with any of the players.

          Either way, please refrain from name calling. There’s no need for that.
