Day 25: Big Shot Bob

Today is Day 25 Netzach sheb’netzah. #Winning #Ringz

When you look at the list of NBA players with the most championships, 8 of the top 9 are members of the great Boston Celtic teams of the 1950s and 60s.

The 9th is Robert Horry aka “Big Shot Bob.” 

Besides those Celtics, Horry has won more titles than Michael Jordan, Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, and everyone else in NBA history. While he was never the best or second best player on any of those teams, he contributed to every title team he played on and to each of his 7 championships. Horry was a talented, multi-dimensional role player, who hit clutch shot after clutch shot, earning the nickname, “Big Shot Bob.” 

On Day 25, netzach sheb’netzach, (pure victory), we honor the man who always seemed to come through with the big play at the most crucial moment.
