HYBRID

NBA ROLE: (STAR) TWO-WAY PIVOT

 

Al Horford has taken the same, modest approach for 10+ years – and it’s paid off: he’s been one of the game’s top bigs during that span; it’s not ridiculous to say Horford is a pretty complete basketball player absent many glaring weaknesses – good defender (post + PnR coverage), rebounder, outlet passer & scorer; rare post up (physically moves defenders before hooks) + three-point threat, game is (slightly) shifting towards the perimeter as he ages; doesn’t get enough credit – adaptable nature (C who pushes the break, passes, cuts & scores like a guard), has helped set the blueprint for the new wave of bigs; loves elbow faceups – loves to pump fake, then his get shoulders by for an easy drive; signed w/ Sixers (Summer ‘19) – versatile F/C alongside Joel Embiid
