For Old Time’s Sake: Big Shot Rob
Robert Horry has 7 NBA Championships. Yes, more than Mike, more than 99% of those who have come through the NBA. However, Big Shot Rob earned his nickname for a reason… you leave him open in the final moments of a close game, forget about it, you might as well head to the locker room before the ball hits the net. Horry had an unbelievable ability to shine during a game’s most pivotal moments and he played a BIG part in all of the championship runs he was a part of. Whether he was scoring in bunches with Houston as a youngster or hitting clutch Js in LA and San Antonio, he always got it done. He never lit up the stat sheet for a full season and his best season statistically was comprised of rather pedestrian numbers: 12 pts, 5.8 rbs, 4 asts as a member of the Rockets in ’95-’96. At the end of the day, Chips are what matters and Rob got 7 of them in 16 seasons. RESPECT.
