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.
