Al Horford takes out full page ad to thank the fans of Atlanta

New, comments

There you have it!

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

In case you've been living under a rock the past week, Al Horford decided to sign with the Boston Celtics in free agency over the Atlanta Hawks. This, along with his father's comments didn't go over well with the fans of Atlanta.

But Horford took out a full-page ad in Thursday's edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to thank the city and Hawks fans for his tenure with the team.

The ad read:

You made my NBA dream come true 9 years ago...

You welcomed me with open arms

You supported me through the ups and downs

You were the reason for our success

I will remember everything we accomplished

I will cherish each and every memory

I am grateful for each and every fan

I wish everyone the best

Before I leave, from the bottom of my heart

THANK YOU, ATLANTA

Al Horford

No matter how you feel about Al leaving, it's a nice gesture.
