The same question has sat in the minds of Boston Celtics fans for quite some time now: what does the starting frontcourt look like?
Boston acquired Al Horford, whose shooting, passing, and defensive versatility make for a more modern approach to the center position. Despite his age, Horford still showed plenty in the tank during an abridged season in OKC where he shot 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and dished out 3.4 assists per game.
It’s also worth noting that Horford played 74 percent of his minutes at center during his three seasons in green and 82 percent of his minutes across his 14 NBA seasons.
If his words are any indication, Horford looks like the frontrunner.
