On Tuesday morning, Al Horford, 30, participated in his first formal practice with the Celtics, navigating a breezy walkthrough that kicked off the team’s first two-a-day session of training camp. After spending his entire nine-year NBA career with the Atlanta Hawks, Horford was asked about stepping outside his comfort zone. “It’s definitely a weird feeling, but I feel good,” Horford said. “It feels right to be here.
“Looking at my career at this point, I’m going into my 10th year and want to be able to be a part of something special and win a championship. With the type of guys that we have here, we have that possibility, and that’s something I wanted to be a part of.”
