Guess which players has won more championships than Michael Jordan and Kareem not named Bill Russell? Believe it or not …it is Robert Horry with 7 championships with 3 different teams. Did Robert Horry follow winning teams or did winning teams follow Robert Horry? No doubting the fact the two went hand and hand, winning and Robert Horry.
Horry is the definition of big shot in the big moment.
He played 16 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA), winning seven championships, the most of any player not to have played on the 1960s Boston Celtics. He is one of only two players (the other is John Salley) to have won NBA championships with three different teams: two with the Houston Rockets, three with the Los Angeles Lakers and two with theSan Antonio Spurs. He earned the nickname Big Shot Rob because of his clutch shooting in important games; he is widely considered to be one of the greatest clutch performers and winners in NBA history. Horry now works as a commentator on Time Warner Cable SportsNet.
