The Jason McIntyre Show: Talking Michigan-Louisville and the NBA with Al Horford of the Atlanta Hawks

A second athlete has dropped by the show: Al Horford, wealthy NBA star (yup, at 17-10, having the best year of his career, he’s a star) of the Atlanta Hawks who just happens to be the older brother of Jon Horford, the Michigan reserve who is playing in the title game tonight against Louisville. Horford is out promoting Hampton Hotels, which recently refurbished a Boys & Girls Club in Atlanta.

Among the topics we hit on:

* Horford rooting for Florida against his brother and Michigan in the Elite 8
* Parallels between Michigan’s run to the title game and Florida’s in his sophomore season
* How surprised he is that Michigan has made this run to the Final
* What life is like for Mitch McGary right now, and what he did when people told him to leave after his sophomore season
* Michigan fans will want to avoid the part where he talks about Burke and the NBA – it sounds like he thinks the guards are gone
* His defensive effort against Greg Oden being a springboard to stardom (and he, like everyone, feels bad for Oden)
* Why he’s gotten so much better this year in Atlanta and how he worked on his game while out injured
* Did you know he’s married to Miss Universe? His story of how they met
