Al Horford is the veteran piece that Sixers signed to help both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons play in their full potential.

Horford’s season is not going as planned untill now with the offensive play of the 76ers being disfunctional, when he is taking the floor along with Simmons and Embiid.

Despite his mediocre season, Horford is helping his team in many ways, as Simmons claimed on Saturday at All-Star media day.

“I love Al,” Simmons said. “Al’s the best. He’s been such a good leader and vet to us. We’re blessed to have him in our presence, just the way he carries himself. He’s a true pro.”
