NBA veteran Al Horford spent nearly two decades waiting for an NBA championship.

On Monday, Horford finally got his chance to bask in the glory of winning a title as the Boston Celtics won Game 5 of the 2024 NBA Finals over the Dallas Mavericks.

As Horford checked out of the game with a little more than two minutes to go and with victory in sight, the veteran put his arms in the air to exclaim his joy for the impending title win.

The catharsis in a moment like this after years and years working hard for this goal has to feel monumental for a great player like Horford.

Even if you don't like the Celtics, you have to love Horford having this kind of moment after playing so well for so long in the NBA.
