Al Horford says it was a privilege to play All-Star Game with Bryant

Dominican player Al Horford acknowledged that it was a “privilege” to participate in the NBA All-Star Game played this Sunday in Toronto (Canada), which was the last of Kobe Bryant’s career.
Horford, of the Atlanta Hawks, entered the East selection at the last moment to replace Chris Bosh (Miami Heat), who suffered an injury.
Following the game, which the West won over the East by a record score of 196-173, Horford expressed satisfaction at being able to share a special moment in NBA history.
“(I am) very happy to be here in Toronto, to be able to play with the best players in the league, very lucky,” said the Dominican basketball player.
Horford acknowledged that his selection, which was announced on Friday, “was very unexpected, it happened very quickly.” “But it was a very pleasant surprise for me and my family and as soon as we found out we came here,” he declared.
Horford commented that the game was very emotional due to the farewell of Bryant, one of the players who has marked the most in the North American professional league in the last decade.
“More than anything it was like a celebration, not only of the game but for his career and I think all the players understood that. We understand what a privilege it is to be on the court with Kobe Bryant.”
“That is something that you have to get into your head, that being with Kobe Bryant in his last game is something very special, something for which I am very happy,” he assured. EFE.
