Al Horford Talks NCAA Tournament, Atlanta Hawks Playoffs, Josh Smith and More

Al Horford and the Hawks always fly, but rarely on the radar.

Like his Atlanta Hawks team, Al Horford is relatively unknown to the casual NBA fan.

And that's quite a shame. 

To those that watch closely though, Horford is capable of a double-double on any given night, is a solid defender and rebounder, and he's been the consummate professional.

The Dominican Republic native was a two-time NCAA champion with the Florida Gators. He's now a sixth-year pro, two-time All Star and one of the most productive front court players in the league.

Capable of ably manning either power forward or center, Horford has helped the Hawks advance to the postseason every year of his blossoming career. With the exception of an injury-shortened 2012 season, he's incrementally improved his steady output every step of the way.

I recently got a chance to speak with Al, and it was yet another opportunity to appreciate the way he quietly goes about being one of the NBA's best bigs.
