Robert Horry did a lot for the San Antonio Spurs in his five seasons even if he didn't find his tenure very entertaining. Winning NBA titles with the Silver and Black in 2005 and 2007, Horry was responsible for what I consider the single biggest shot in Spurs history. Although he retired in 2008, the shots keep on coming.
Speaking about the endless Kyrie Irving drama in Brooklyn on his podcast, Big Shot Bob, Horry began reminiscing about his own NBA career and if he was ever involved in similar situations. Having played in the league for 16 years, Horry certainly was part of some drama-filled teams, most notably his Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal years with the Lakers.
"We had the situation when Vernon [Maxwell] left the team in '95," said Horry. "But other than that, when you're winning, you cover up a lot of stuff." The Spurs did plenty of that in the early 2000s, but the lack of drama still sticks out in Horry's mind.
"In San Antonio, we never had any damn drama, said Horry. "That was the most boringest team. The most exciting thing we had was when Tony [Parker] and Eva [Longoria] started dating."
Throughout their dynastic run, it's hard to argue that anything blew up more media-wise than when the star couple of Parker and Longoria got together. After all, the Spurs were quickly labeled as boring the minute the stoic Tim Duncan began dominating everyone's favorite superstars.
Now two decades after the Spurs won their first NBA championship, the boring label continues to be forced onto the team despite a complete roster and strategy overhaul for the 2021-22 season. As I called out on Thursday morning, the endless need to force the label will prove to be something that doesn't age well.
With the way his career ended in San Antonio, Horry still has a noticeable grudge that just won't go away. Now with his own weekly podcast, expect him to take some more digs at his former team whenever he's given a chance.
