Former Laker star, Robert Horry, was escorted out of a youth basketball game Friday night. Video showed Horry sitting in the bleachers at St. Francis High School, alongside other spectators and shouting at referees. The game was between Harvard Westlake and St. Francis High School. The video, shot by fans in the stands, shows Horry’s son, Christian, who plays for Harvard Westlake was whistled for a foul.
Hasan Minhaj: “For me, Game 6 was probably one of the worst American tragedies in history. So we can talk about what happened with Vlade, we can talk about the pinky on Shaq’s palm and that being a foul, we can talk Webber. getting called on offensive fouls while Rober Horry is winning an Oscar in flopping, but I wanna talk about your moment with Kobe and the elbow to you. The inbound pass is coming and you get called for the foul.” Mike Bibby: “He did it kind of smooth like a savvy veteran would do and made it look like it wasn’t on purpose…It’s a different ball game if we get that call….We get that call, it’s our ball 10, 11, 12 seconds left down 1 and it’s a different story, and I love playing in LA. so it probably would have been bad for them.”

Shareef O'Neal fires back at Robert Horry

During an episode of Horry’s “Big Shot Bob Pod with Robert Horry” podcast released last week, Horry criticized O’Neal’s effort. “I picked up my phone, and I was getting ready to call Shaq like, ‘Yo man, you gotta tell your son…he can’t be playing off the damn O’Neal name,’” Horry said, via Lakers Daily. “You gotta put forth some more effort man. You know Shareef’s such a nice kid, that I don’t know if he has that dog in him to go out there and take what he wants.”
O’Neal took the high road on Wednesday, tweeting a gracious response to Horry’s take. “I know this outta love and no disrespect!!!” O’Neal wrote. “I got you BIG SHOT but you know who raised me, I don’t quit. Always been taught to go get it and take it. Been heading in the right step…like I said I got you! You’ll see.”
It’s because during the 1998 Western Conference finals, the Lakers—then built around a young Shaquille O’Neal (26) and an even younger Kobe Bryant (19)—were, for the second straight spring, getting absolutely destroyed by the Jazz, a veteran-laden powerhouse led by Karl Malone and John Stockton. The Lakers were flashier and more talented, with Van Exel, Eddie Jones, Robert Horry, Rick Fox and Derek Fisher flanking O’Neal and Bryant. But the Jazz were more mature and methodical and ultimately overpowering. “We were young,” Van Exel says. “We had guys that wanted to get their points and do their thing, as opposed to going out there and winning as a group.”
