Al Horford gave the Boston Celtics a crucial win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the two teams on Monday night. The veteran center is playing some of his best basketball as he tries to clinch his first NBA title. If he had been able to do so, he would also have earned a massive payday.

The next season marks the final year of the four-year, $109 million contract Horford signed with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2019. The first three years and $82.5 million of the deal were guaranteed. However, the following season, Horford is only guaranteed $14.5 million out of his $26.5 million salary. If the Celtics win the NBA Finals, the full $26.5 million is guaranteed.
