Tito Horford was just the third Dominican-born player in the NBA. The 7'1" center had a nice run at the U, nearly averaging a double-double the two years he was there. His game didn't translate to the pros and he only played in 63 games during his three-season career. His son can ball, though.

Al Horford helped the Florida Gators win back-to-back NCAA championships and is having himself a solid NBA career. He's a bit undersized at center, but Al is an exceptional defender and can score the rock. His PPG average rose from 10.1 to 15.3 in his first five years in the league and he's looking to have a strong comeback season after missing most of last year with a muscle tear.
