After beating Lebron James in the NBA playoffs for the first time ever, Al Horford gave the most electrifying interview of his career.


During his 15 seasons in the NBA, he’s faced “King James” 14 times, and he’s gotten his ass handed to him every time – until now. In a postgame interview, Al Horford fired shots at doubters and haters, saying “A lot of people doubted us out there… thought we were finished.”

Coming off the much needed win, Horford’s interview was exactly what fans needed.


He showed so much emotion that some compared it to a WWE wrestling promo.


It’s even been turned into a WWE-style meme.


Whether you’re a fan of Al Horford and the Boston Celtics or not, you have to appreciate what that huge Game 3 win meant for this Dominican Republic-born four-time All-Star.


According to CSN’s Mike Felger, it was a “great reaction and great television.”


For Al Horford it was genuine vindication, so it’s understandable that he’d be emotional. Especially considering that this hard-fought victory follows that brutal franchise record-setting loss in Game 2. Lebron and company beat the Celtics by a humiliating 44 points, so it must have been huge for him to avenge that “L” by snapping the Cavs’ post-season streak with his own first personal win over LBJ in the playoffs.

Check out the entire interview below:


What do you think? Was Horford’s post-game interview “too much” or was it just “ruthless aggression?”
