Robert Horry he averaged no season during his career more than 12 points per game. Despite this, many NBA stars have retired dreaming of achieving a seventh of what he achieved in his 16 years as a professional.
Leaving aside 32 games he played with the Phoenix Suns in a 96/97 season in which he played in three teams, we can say that Horry triumphed in the 3 teams of his life: Houston rockets (2 rings), Los Angeles Lakers (3 rings) and San Antonio Spurs (2 rings).
And is that, leaving aside six players from the Celtics of the sixties (Russell, Jones, Havlicek and company), Horry is the player with the most rings in NBA history: 7. One more than Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
