ROOKIE INSPIRES HAWKS OVER CELTICS


Atlanta Journal Constitution

1 hour ago -Hawks center Al Horford is a rookie but he operates like a veteran, a player who's been around the NBA longer than 10 months. So when he sensed that his team needed a little inspiration before Saturday's Game 3 of their playoff series with Boston, Horford took matters into his own hands. He called back to the Florida basketball offices to get an edited copy of the Academy Award winning documentary "When We Were Kings," the story of Muhammad Ali's famous upset of George Foreman in the Rumble in the Jungle in 1974.


Can you say rookie of the year?
