NBA legend and analyst Robert Horry shared his reaction to Blake’s shooting on Spectrum SportsNet, and opened up on the difficult conversations he’s been forced to have with his children as a Black father. “I was sitting there and I started crying. And my wife walks in and she’s like ‘are you crying because you’re turning 50 today?’ And I started laughing, like, no. I said ‘did you see the video of this guy getting shot?’ And at first, I saw it and I’m looking at it, I thought ‘well maybe they’re going to tase him, right?’ Because that’s what they do with white people. They tase them. And so I didn’t have the volume up, and Christian walks in the room and says ‘no, dad, they shot him.’ I play it again, I’m like ‘wow.’ They shoot this guy seven times in the back.
Robert Horry: And then I have this conversation with Christian, and he was like ‘that’s wrong, that’s wrong.’ I said ‘yo, that’s beyond wrong. It’s just flat-out evil.’ And I’m telling him…. and it’s hard to tell your 14-year-old son that I worry about him when he walks out that door. I have a 21-year-old son, I worry about him. Because Black men are an endangered species pretty much. These cops are just killing because they feel like if they don’t have their body cams on, they have a right.’ And I tell my kids all the time, I say ‘dude, I don’t care what’s going on, because at the end of the day, I want you coming home to me. If you have to lay down on the ground and they can kick you, beat you – at least you’re going to go to the hospital, you’re going to come home to me. Whatever they say to you, don’t take it upon yourself to let that rage you have against that cop come out. Because he has the gun. He can end you. And I don’t want him to end you, because if he ends you, that means I’m going to end him.’ And I know that’s wrong for me to say, but I’m so much ‘A Time To Kill’ guy like Samuel L. Jackson, you know, and this is going to happen with me. And I said I don’t want that to happen. I already lost one child. I don’t need to lose another. And I don’t think people understand, especially white people, how hard it is for Black people to watch that.”
As much as the Lakers’ previous championships this century have relied on mostly Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, they also had Robert Horry, Derek Fisher, Rick Fox and Ron Artest make critical 3-pointers when their stars needed help. The current Lakers have not extended that same courtesy. Any excuses about adjusting toward playing without fans or having playoff jitters won’t cut it. Neither does the Blazers having superior momentum over the Lakers because they played a heavier workload during the season restart to secure a playoff berth, while the Lakers coasted to maximize health. “You’ve got to erase your memory. That’s part of being confident,” Kuzma said. “If you miss 10 in a row, or you make 10 in a row, you’ve got to forget about them and keep shooting them. I like to say, ‘Just shoot until you get hot,’ and I think we have that capability.”
Wolves President Gersson Rosas, who grew up in Houston and spent most of his career working for the Rockets, said Tomjanovich helped revolutionize the game by transforming the 4, or power forward, position. By using shooter Robert Horry in that slot, Tomjanovich spaced the floor in an era when teams might otherwise have two post players on the court at the same time. “That had rarely been done in the NBA. It was more European,” Rosas said. “It changes the floor and changes the spacing. The horizontal impact on the game — it went from two bigs in the post, maybe some pick-and-roll, execution action, to now you open up the floor.”
