This Dominican Basketball Player Becomes A Viral Meme For Putting Haters On Blast For Doubting The Boston Celtics And Twitter Is Living For It

After beating Lebron James in the NBA playoffs for the first time ever, Al Horford gave the most electrifying interview of his career.


During his 15 seasons in the NBA, he’s faced “King James” 14 times, and he’s gotten his ass handed to him every time – until now. In a postgame interview, Al Horford fired shots at doubters and haters, saying “A lot of people doubted us out there… thought we were finished.”

Coming off the much needed win, Horford’s interview was exactly what fans needed.


He showed so much emotion that some compared it to a WWE wrestling promo.


It’s even been turned into a WWE-style meme.


Whether you’re a fan of Al Horford and the Boston Celtics or not, you have to appreciate what that huge Game 3 win meant for this Dominican Republic-born four-time All-Star.


According to CSN’s Mike Felger, it was a “great reaction and great television.”


For Al Horford it was genuine vindication, so it’s understandable that he’d be emotional. Especially considering that this hard-fought victory follows that brutal franchise record-setting loss in Game 2. Lebron and company beat the Celtics by a humiliating 44 points, so it must have been huge for him to avenge that “L” by snapping the Cavs’ post-season streak with his own first personal win over LBJ in the playoffs.

Check out the entire interview below:


What do you think? Was Horford’s post-game interview “too much” or was it just “ruthless aggression?”

A Texas Lawmaker Called ICE On Protesters — And All Hell Broke Lose

On Memorial Day, while most of us were kicking back, more than 1,000 protesters gathered in the public gallery of the Texas House to loudly voice their disdain for the new anti-immigrant law known as SB4. Protestors wanted answers about the new law, which requires local police to follow federal procedures concerning undocumented people.

One Republican lawmaker was not happy that protesters were disrupting their session.

On the House floor, Texas Republican Rep. Matt Rinaldi was so annoyed with protesters that he told his democratic colleagues that he called ICE to arrest non-citizens who were protesting, the New York Times reports.

With protesters outside and inside the gallery, and Rinaldi losing it, things just escalated from there.

Democrat Rep. César J. Blanco also said that Rinaldi used an obscenity on the floor.

Blanco claims that Rinaldi actually said: “I called I.C.E…Fuck them!”

“We were in shock,” Blanco told The New York Times. “He assumed that because they were brown, in the gallery and protesting that they were here illegally.”

The protesting wasn’t just happening inside the public gallery.

There was music and dancing…

… but back inside, lawmakers were at each other’s throats.

The drama continued to unfold as Democratic Rep. Poncho Nevárez alleged that Rinaldi threatened to shoot him.

“There was a subsequent exchange between my brother Poncho and Representative Rinaldi and there was a threat made from Rinaldi to put a bullet in one of my colleague’s heads,” Rep. Justin Rodriguez told reporters after the incident, The Texas Observer reported. “That kind of threatening language, he needs to be called out and held accountable for.”

The GOP politician doesn’t dispute that he’d shoot Nevárez but claimed he only said it as self-defense.

It’s also not clear if anyone will press charges, but according to a press release, Republican House speaker Joe Straus said, “There is no excuse for members making insensitive and disparaging remarks on the floor of the Texas House.”
