NBA World Champions
Any discussion of Alabama’s place in the NBA begins and ends with seven-time
NBA World Champion Robert Horry. Horry starred at Alabama from 1989-92
before the Houston Rockets selected him with the 11th pick of the 1992
draft. Two years later, he led Houston to the first of back-to-back titles
before moving on to Los Angeles where he helped the Lakers to three
consecutive titles in 2000, 2001 and 2002. Three seasons later he was with
the San Antonio Spurs when they won titles in 2005 and 2007.
Only six players in NBA history have won more titles than Horry and he is
the first player since 1976 to win more than six titles. He is also just one
of two players in NBA history to lead three different franchises to an NBA
title. Horry finished his career as the NBA all-time leader in playoff
games, appearing in 244 games, seven more than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Along
the way, he set the NBA Finals record for steals in a game with seven
against the Orlando Magic in the 1995 Finals. His 261 three-pointers in
playoff action rank as the second most in NBA playoff history and his 40 in
the Finals are the NBA record.
Jason Caffey has also won multiple NBA titles, helping the Chicago Bulls to
World Championships in 1996 and 1997.
