Robert Keith Horry (pronounced /ˈɔər.iː/; born August 25, 1970) is an American basketball player. He has played 16 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA), winning seven championships. He is one of only two players to have won NBA championships with three different teams: two with the Houston Rockets, three with the Los Angeles Lakers and two with the San Antonio Spurs. Because of his clutch shooting in important games, he is nicknamed "Big Shot Rob", a play on the nickname of "Big Game" James Worthy. As of the 2008–09 NBA season, Horry was an inactive free agent who had hoped to be signed by some team prior to the end of the season, though that did not occur. Horry now works as a commentator on NBA TV.
Born in Harford County, Maryland, Horry grew up in Andalusia, Alabama. As a senior at Andalusia High School, he won the Naismith Alabama High School Player of the Year award. He attended the University of Alabama on a basketball scholarship, where he was a teammate of fellow future NBA player Latrell Sprewell.
At Alabama, Horry started 108 of the 133 games he played in and helped the Tide win three SEC tournament titles and two berths in the NCAA's Sweet 16 round. Alabama compiled a 98-36 record during his four seasons, with Horry establishing a school record for career blocked shots (282). He was selected to the All-Southeastern Conference, the SEC All-Defensive and the SEC All-Academic teams.
