HoopsHype David Robinson rumors
Which of your seven rings means the most to you? Robert Horry: The Rockets in ’95 when we swept Orlando because all the teams we had to beat had top 50 players on them.

“I always thought it was special to be in one place and you could put together a team, especially in a small market like San Antonio’s,” said Hall of Fame center David Robinson, who won two championships and spent his entire 14-season career with the San Antonio Spurs. “But it’s real tough because the small-market teams don’t have the money to do what a New York can do and the Lakers can do. It’s going to be hard for a lot of small-market teams.” Yahoo! Sports
