Top 50 NBA Players 2010
A glance at players 11-50.
No. 45 Al Horford
The Hawks often feature iso-heavy offense, meaning that the lack of reliance on an inside-out scheme never revealed Horford’s full potential as an inside scoring threat. Last season saw his field goal attempts per game rise to just over 10 and he made a career-high 55 percent of those shots. While many of those attempts came from the 2.9 offensive rebounds he averaged per game, Horford also showcased a nice mid-range jumper.
Horford averaged just over 3 free-throw attempts per game, which will and should go up with more contributions on offense. His career-high 14.2 points and 9.9 rebounds led to his first All-Star selection; marking the first time since 1998 the Hawks had two representatives (Joe Johnson was the other).
