Robert Horry - Human Leech
For those of you that consistently read our blog, you know we're not exactly big fans of Robert Horry. He deep-sixed our Sac-Town Kings years back and he was responsible for one of the worst playoff rulings in professional sports history this year when he decked Steve Nash and got Boris Diaw and Amare Stoudemire suspended for a critical game. As Dwyermaker so famously opined after Game 5, "Clearly living up to the name Big Shot Rob, he came through in the clutch once again."
Indeed he did. We like Rob a little bit more than Satan, and a lot less than jock itch. So naturally we're sad to see him surpass Michael Jordan in career rings. That said though, he won't be going to the Hall of Fame. He's nowhere near good enough. That's at least comforting. But how did he do it? How did he get those 7 rings? Why, by being a bandwagon whore, that's how. Full Court NBA breaks it down in detail for you. And goes after Horry. We enjoyed that immensely, even though people left plenty of jackass comments somehow defending Horry for averaging 0.3 points a game in the Finals. Oh, and according to them he's a great guy. And as we all know, great guys bite other people. You stay classy, Rob.
