Al Horford celebrates his 27th birthday with funny sunglasses

We here at That NBA Lottery Pick would like to wish Atlanta Hawks forward Al Horford, “A Happy 27th Birthday” and well, Mr. Horford posted a celebratory photo to his Twitter account only a few short moments ago. Clearly, I don’t think the sunglasses are a good look for Al:
