The flops by Bradley Beal and Draymond Green were awesome and worthy of Shooting Star memes, but the funniest clip from the final episode of Shaqtin’ a Fool goes to Al Horford, showing he still has a fear of rebounding (FYI, this episode aired after Horford only grabbed three boards in 37 minutes vs the Cavs in GM4) missed free throws.
What made Horford flinching at the sight of the missed free throw so funny is it’s not the first time he’s done it. His former teammate, Dennis Schroder, even joked about the frequency by posting the video of Horford with the caption: “OMG Al Hoford did it again.”
Here’s two past incidents showing Horford’s hilarious phobia. One is from 2011 and the other was a Shaqtin’ a Fool feature in 2015.
