Full Court would like to award Robert Horry, other than the fact that he looks like a less-suave Will Smith, for his ever-great decision-making and intuition as he has proven time and time again that it isn't all a battle of will, nor a battle of skill, nor a battle of heart, but can sometimes be a battle of the minds; and he has dominated ultimately in that aspect more than any other player has in NBA history. Robert Horry has led as an example to the band-wagoning class which is highlighted by some marquee names such as Gary Payton, Jim Jackson, and Antoine Walker to name a few. Please give it up for Robert Horry, the league's Most Band-wagoning Player! Applause.
It is such a huge shame that Robert Horry will go down in the history books as the player with the most championships than anyone non-Celtic. One of the greatest travesties in this scenario is that Robert Horry will have more championships than one of the greatest, if not the greatest, basketball players to have ever played the game in Michael Jordan. Throw Scottie Pippen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, James Worthy, or even the Celtic Larry Bird into the mix, and Robert Horry can claim that he has out-ringed all these great players. Robert Horry is the worst player ever to be named into the category of 'Most Championships Won', as he isn't even a tenth of the skill, talent, or will of any of the preceding players mentioned above. It is ridiculous. That is why Full Court has decided to award Robert Horry with the MBP, in recognition that no other player in the next century will be able to even closely mimic what Horry has achieved. Robert Horry jumps from team to team and analyzes his prospects very well. If he doesn't see a championship in the team's future within the next 3 years, he will throw a towel in the face of his coach, get himself suspended, and be traded to another team more to his liking. It was evident that Horry felt the foreboding of a Laker-team-meltdown, so he swam in the free agent pool and found himself in the hands of the San Antonio Spurs. What a genius. Robert Horry now has 7 championship rings, one more than Michael Jordan. He acquired 2 with the Rockets, 3 with the Lakers, and 2 with the Spurs. If Robert Horry decided to build a career out of gambling, he would be a filthy billionaire by four years from starting date. Once again, a huge congratulations to the worst, but smartest, player to ever enter the history books of the elite. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him surpass Bill Russell's championship count within the next 8 years.
Although it isn't hard to give credit to Robert Horry for nailing some of the most heart-breaking game-winners in playoff history, his "Big Shot Rob" reputation has been all but over-hyped. Face it, plenty of his game-winners weren't really necessary in the long run as the rest of his teammates would dominate the opponent either way had they lost that certain game or not. The perfect examples would be his game-winner against the Spurs in '95 and this year's 'So what?' 3-pointer against the Denver Nuggets. Believe it or not, even if Robert Horry was in Fiji enjoying a coconut, the Spurs would have won the very same way now anyway (not counting the body-check on Nash). The only countable game-winners that created an impact would probably be against the Kings in '02 and against the Pistons in '05. Other than that, Big Shot Rob is just another dead log in the woods. He is hardly used, and drains his so-called "cold blooded" clutch baskets with no defender within 27 feet near him; mainly because of the stupidity of the defense or unforeseen circumstances like the accidental tapping of a certain Vlade Divac to a certain wide-open forward standing right outside the three-point line.
Over-all, this is just the epitome of stupidity; but we have to accept what has just transpired and hope for someone more deserving and acceptable in the future to overtake Robert Horry in the championship-count to overshadow one of the greatest stains in the history books of the league. Robert Horry, kiss my ass!
