Al Horford in a 76ers uniform didn't feel real before, but it sure does now.

The ex-Celtics big man rang the bell at the Wells Fargo Center prior to Wednesday night's season opener between the C's and 76ers. Watch below... or don't, if you're still not ready to cope with Horford wearing Sixers Blue:

Horford admittedĀ his first game against his ex-C's teammates would "feel weird," so we can only imagine how strange it must have felt to be the one ringingĀ the bell prior to the matchup.
