Horford Tweets: ‘I do not bet on basketball’

Hawks  center Al Horford  took to the Twitter to tell his followers  that he was joking about making a wager with Paul Pierce  for $10,000 during the 2008 playoffs and that he doesn’t bet on hoops, or any other sport for that matter.
Horford caused a mini controversy earlier in the week after an appearance on an Atlanta sports talk show with teammate Marvin Williams  in which he said that Pierce bet him $10,000  that the Hawks wouldn’t win a game during their first round series with the Celtics.
On Wednesday, Horford posted two comments on Twitter:
“Some of my comments from the radio interview I did yesterday with 790 the zone were overblown. I was joking.”
“Paul Pierce and I did not make a bet during the playoffs in 2008. I do not bet on basketball or any other sports.”
