Robert Horry Wants His Respect For Winning Seven Championships: “They Don’t Really Respect What I Did”


Seven-time champion Robert Horry isn’t someone who goes bonkers over criticisms. However, it seems as if Horry has finally reached his tipping point and decided to break silence.

Despite being one of the most successful players of all-time, Horry believes he doesn’t get the respect he deserves. In an interview with FOX Sports, Horry suggested how people tend to degrade his accomplishments for the reason that he was just a role-player in those championships.


“A part of you gets mad because I don’t think people outside the NBA family — and when I say ‘NBA’ I’m saying coaches and players — they don’t really respect what I did and they don’t really understand what I did and what I was able to accomplish,” Horry told FOX Sports. “It’s always, ‘Oh he was a part. Oh, he was a part.’ Yeah, I was a part, but I was a significant part.

“You can’t have Kool-Aid without sugar, and I was the sugar to most of that stuff.”


Horry is just one of the 12 players to win six or more championship rings. He also did it on three different teams; two with the Houston Rockets, three with the Los Angeles Lakers and another two with the San Antonio Spurs.

On Monday, Horry made it to Twitter to congratulate Tom Brady, who recently won his seventh Super Bowl ring. Horry welcomed him to the ‘7 Chip Club’ while posting a Spider-Man pointing meme with a photoshopped image of their two faces.

Ultimately, fans made fun of it and exclaimed that Horry isn’t on the same plane as Brady to make a post of such. Horry, who heard all the responses, said he felt slighted, but insisted that he didn’t pay much attention.


“More than half the time, I feel slighted because I don’t think people really appreciate what I did,” Horry said. “Even [Monday], with me tweeting [about Brady], there’s always people going, ‘Oh, this, this, and this.’ I don’t pay any attention because if it was one of my teammates that would’ve said it, then it would’ve had some meaning.”
