Robert Horry Making The Hall of Fame “It Is Up In The Air” Says Former Teammate
Robert Horry averaged 7 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists during his 15 seasons in the NBA. Horry had the pleasure of playing with a lot of future Hall of Famers Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, Kobe, Shaq, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan.
While playing alongside those great individuals he development the name “Big Shot Rob” not because of his work during the regular season, but what he was able to accomplish in the postseason. Horry seemed to always be in the right place at the right time whether it is hitting a game-winner in game four of the 2002 Western Conference Finals against Sacramento Kings or game five of the 2005 NBA Finals vs. the Pistons. Horry became Big Shot Rob right before our eyes on his way to collecting seven champions as a member of the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, and San Antonio Spurs.
It can be argued that throughout his stint in the NBA, Horry established himself as a great role player, but does he deserve considerations for the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame?
“It is up in the air because of all the big shots he has hit throughout his career and the championships he has won. The argument for him to be in the Hall of Fame is valid, but looking at his regular season numbers, the argument is not as strong. Rob would just chill until the playoffs came around *laughs*. So, that is the argument against Rob, but he was a great player and a significant role in the history of the NBA. I’d say it is a possibility that he will get inducted into the Hall of Fame.” Former Los Angeles Laker Assistant Tracy Murray told me.
Only time will tell!
