He showed up today just like last year's playoffs! Horford backing down Giannis was amazing. ;D

At this point the "Horford doesn't deserve his salary" people are just a source of amusement to me. 

Like people who say there's no evidence for global warming.

You're just notifying the people around you of how much they should consider your opinions in general.

To be fair, half this thread was about whether Lebron is overpaid.  :)

Al Horford was the number 2 free agent, after Durant, for a reason. His selection of Boston was massive even if it was an overpay. I always liked Al but he's never felt like a max guy.

I really don't care what he makes now. Dude's a stud and a role model. What a big performance.

TP! Thought it was fair at the time too compared to what others were signing for.

Al "Max Money" Horford just doing what he does in the playoffs.

Nobody should be surprised.

If he played like yesterday all the time this thread wouldn't exist, but he doesn't so it does.

I'd rather have Horford pace himself during the season (he is 31), make sure he stays healthy, and then bring it in the playoffs than the opposite. Especially with our boatload of injuries this year.

I still get a laugh out of everyone who p*sses & moans about Horford & his contract.

I am grateful when they do. They just identify themselves as someone whose opinion about anything in basketball can be easily dismissed.

I've said it before in this thread. We're getting exactly what we should have expected from production, professionalism and leadership standpoints. If anyone had different expectations then that's their problem.

The only thing different than usual about yesterday was the minutes and the frequency of going inside, neither of which would be sustainable over 80 games.

I worry it won't be sustainable over a seven game series.

What he brings every night is well worth the max.

Which is just another way of saying that he isn't able to sustain being a max player over 80 games. It's ok, though. He's still valuable.

I think Jaylen Brown might have something to say about that before all is said and done
