Ford: I ended up having dinner plans with Skip [Robinson], the public relations guy. He helped me do a lot of great things in Milwaukee. We go to dinner and I didn’t really have no power at my house, so at the restaurant, I’ve got my phone and my charger, but they’re not next to me. He answered his phone and he’s sitting directly across from me and I just hear him go, ‘No! No! You’ve got to be kidding me.’ So, he’s like, ‘Here, the GM wants to talk to you.’ So, I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ The GM’s like, ‘How do you feel about going to Toronto?’ I’m like, ‘What are you talking about? Stop playing with me. Stop f—— with me. Seriously, what’s going on?’ He’s like, ‘No, for real. We just traded you for Charlie Villanueva and it hasn’t hit the news yet and it probably won’t tonight.’ I’m like, ‘Yo, Skip, he just told me he f—— traded me. He must be joking with me.’
Towns expressed appreciation for Horford, former NBA player Charlie Villanueva and other Dominican basketball stars who paved the way for him. “It’s an amazing, amazing time to see two Dominicans strive to play basketball at the highest level,” Towns said. “Al is one of the pioneers who showed how you can really make it if you push your talent and put your mind to something. I’m just trying to follow the leader.”
