Robert Horry as interviewed by Andi Petrilli

The CBC's Andi Petrilli, interviews one of the NBA's all-time greats, Robert Horry. April 25th, at the Intercontinental Hotel in Toronto.
Being listed at 6'10" (he played mostly as a "small forward" in his career), you'd think Horry would stand out in a crowd. Well, he does by being tall but his self-effacing personality gets him down to the eye level of your average person. He is a genuinely pleasant and  humble guy who is just "one of the guys".
Here are a few of Horry's amazing stats: 
 - one of only 9 players to have won 7 or more NBA championships, and the only one who didn't play in the 1960s Celtics,
 - one of only 3 players to win consecutive championships with 2 different teams,
 - one of only 2 players to win championships with 3 different teams,
 - first player to accumulate 100 steals, 100 blocked shots, 100 threes in one season,
 - holds the record (NBA Finals) 7 steals in a game, 5 3-pointers in a quarter, 
 - all-time leader in play-off games played with 244
Horry is known as Big Shot Rob because of his cluth shooting in important games and he is widely considered to be one of the greatest clutch performers in NBA history.
