The NBA's all-time greatest clutch player has invested his athletic riches into sports medicine.
Robert Horry, a seven-time champion in 16 seasons, opened "Robert Horry Sports Rehab Center" in Sugar Land, Texas, a facility that specializes in athletic training, sports medicine services and rehab.
"Big Shot Rob," averaged 7.0 ppg and 4.8 rebs while earning $53,745,000 from the Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs.
Horry is one of just nine players to have won seven or more championships in the NBA, but he's the only one who didn't play on Bill Russell's 1960s Celtics. John Salley and Horry are the only players with championship rings from three different teams. In addition to the rings, Horry holds the record for most all-time playoff games (244), passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The premiere facility for Horry opened in June, with plans for future "Robert Horry Sports Rehab Centers in Los Angeles, San Antonio and Alabama.
Horry's daughter, Ashlyn, died last month at age 17, following a long battle with a rare genetic disorder called 1p36 deletion syndrome, a disease that develops when part of the first chromosome is missing.
