After having one of the greatest careers in the history of the NBA, Robert Horry is thinking about calling it quits. With seven championship rings in his pocket and more playoff games than any player ever, Big Shot Rob is questioning whether or not he has another season’s worth of gas in his tank, but if you ask us, he’s just getting ready to take us all on a Brett Favre-like retirement roller coaster ride for the next five years or so.
“Right now I’m up in the air,” Horry, 37, said. “That’s all I can really tell you, up in the air. I want to play, 80 percent of me wants to play and I’m sure as soon as I get in the gym and see people bouncing the ball it would turn into 100 percent. So we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.”
“I think that if I stick around I’m still better than a lot of players,” Horry said. “I might not be as fast as a lot of them or as quick. But I’m smarter than probably about 98 percent of the league.”
Horry went on to say he’d like to stay in San Antonio should he return, but that he is also open to other contenders. Well, after the Spurs lethargic performance against the Lakers, we expect Gregg Popovich to cut some aging weight like Horry, Michael Finely and Kurt Thomas. Wonder if New Orleans or Phoenix would be willing to bury the hatchet?
