On how things played out with New York, Al Horford said of Joakim Noah, a life-long Knicks fan: "It's hard. Because ever since I've met him I've always known him wanting to be a Knick, be here in New York. And I feel like he really, he's an example of what New York is. He really embraces that and it was just tough for him not be able to play to his potential here and do the things that he wanted to do." Horford and Noah were teammates at Florida.
