Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device!

In Al Horford: The Inspirational Story of One of Basketball’s Most Well-Rounded Power Forwards, you will learn the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier power forwards, Al Horford. When Horford entered the league, he was already a two-time champion as a member of the 2006 and 2007 Florida Gator teams led by Billy Donovan. As the third overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft, Horford entered the league with many setting high expectations for him. He more than delivered in his nine years with the Atlanta Hawks as one of their most consistent players.

More recently in the 2016-2017 offseason, Horford decided to sign with the Boston Celtics as the Celtics have returned as a dominant force in the Eastern Conference. It will be exciting to see what Horford and the Celtics are able to accomplish together as they seek to add another NBA Championship to the franchise, a feat that was last accomplished during the Big 3 era of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen.

An excerpt from the book:

Alfred “Al” Horford was born on June 3, 1986, in San Felipe de Puerto Plata, Puerto de Plata in the Dominican Republic. Al was born to parents Alfredo William “Tito” Horford and Arelis Reynoso. Tito Horford himself was once a basketball star, having played in the NBA for three seasons. At 7’1”, he was a large center and was the first player from the Dominican Republic to play in the NBA after getting selected 39th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks back in 1988 when Al was only two years old.

Tito, who started playing basketball at a young age in the Dominican Republic, was recruited by a Houston-based high school until he was good enough to get a spot on Louisiana State University’s basketball team before getting cut without playing a single minute. He then spent the next two years with the University of Miami where he averaged 14.2 points and 9.3 rebounds over the course of the next two seasons. Tito then played limited minutes in his stint with the Bucks in the NBA. He played 60 games for them while barely playing over 6 minutes a night. Then, during the 1993-94 season, he was signed by the Washington Bullets after a few seasons of playing overseas. However, he would only play three games that year.

Al Horford’s mother, Arelis Reynoso, is a journalist by profession, and she has always been a staunch supporter of her son’s basketball dreams ever since the eldest Horford child was in his early years. For the young Al Horford, life as a young boy was not so easy considering all the travels he had to make while Tito was playing professionally in the USA and other foreign basketball leagues around the world.
