Mike Woodson: Al Horford Should Have Been RoY

"It’s a travesty and it’s not right," Woodson said Wednesday night before Atlanta’s Game 5 loss to Boston, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "He should have shared it, if not gotten it outright. And I don’t want to hear about us not being on TV or anything like that. It doesn’t matter. It’s what this kid has done for this team.

Horford averaged 10.1 points and 9.7 rebounds, helping the Hawks back to the NBA playoffs for the first time in nine years.

"We haven’t had a power forward/center come in our league and do what he’s done [average a double-double] in I don’t know how many years," Woodson said. "I mean, come on, man." [ESPN]
