Al Horford got a smile on his face when asked about rookie Adreian Payne at Monday’s media day. A big smile.

“Explosive, man,” Horford said. “Honestly. I never saw him play much in college and I didn’t realize that he was that explosive. He is a special athlete, I’m telling you, just blocking shots and some of the dunks he does. And he can shoot. He can really shoot the 3-ball. I was really impressed with him. … He is a very, very nice addition to our team.”
