Al Horford Reveals Why He Sometimes ‘Is Afraid Of The Ball’ And Flinches

 

One of the first things that come into mind when thinking about Al Horford is that he sometimes flinches at the ball, when someone missed a free throw or a jump shot.

It really has become a regular thing and honestly is one of the funnier abnormalities in the NBA.

 

 

But why is Horford actually proceeding to flinch at these balls? The five time All-Star, who celebrates his 34th birthday today, thankfully revealed to Taylor Snow the origins of his ‘ballphobia’.

 

“I just try to keep it loose sometimes for the guys. The game is so serious at times — and I take it very serious — but there are times that you put things in perspective. That’s something I’ve been doing for years. I kinda stopped doing it. The other night I was just messing around … I just started doing it. I don’t think I’ve done it very much this year. This might be the second or third time. A lot of the times I just try to get a laugh out of the guys, my teammates on the bench. That’s kinda what I go for. I’m sure people are curious. Now they know.”
