Al Horford Makes Generous Donation to Boston Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

It looks like Philadelphia 76ers big-man Al Horford has yet to cut ties with Boston, or any former cities where he played basketball for that matter.

The former Celtic has made a generous $500,000 donation to aid coronavirus relief efforts in Boston and every other city where he's played basketball, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

The 33-year-old spent three seasons with the Celtics (2016-2019) before signing a massive contract with the 76ers as a free agent this past summer.

It's pretty generous for Horford to donate a large sum of money amid the COVID-19 outbreak, and he joins a long list of athletes who are doing their part to aid the community during this difficult time.
