Has Robert Horry done lost his mind as my buddy Jorge Sedano put it? Would this Spurs team really take it to the 80s Celtics and 80s Lakers? Is it entirely possible? Robert Horry will be double-fisting rings after this series is over. He’ll have more brass than Michael Jordan. If anyone knows something about championships, it’s him. But has he gone crazy in telling Yahoo! Sports that the Spurs could beat Larry Legend’s Celtics and Magic’s Showtime Lakers?
“We would beat them,” he boasted.
“No disrespect to the guys back in the 80′s and the 70′s, but the guys now are so much better than those guys,” Horry said. “I don’t care what they say. If you look at old films, guys only went right. They turned and kept it in their right hand. Look at the things LeBron (James) can do, Tim (Duncan) can do, Tony (Parker) can do, Manu (Ginobili) can do. Little (Daniel) Gibson over there. There’s no way you can compare those guys. We watched what they did and expanded on that.”
Gotta love Big Shot Rob stirring the pot here. I know Horry’s playing with some special athletes, and LeBron might be one of a kind, but you telling me what these guys are doing now wasn’t seen in the 80s? Maybe way back in the day, sure. 20 years ago they weren’t windmill dunking, but it was still a good, athletic game. And forget what Bob says, there isn’t anything Daniel Gibson is doing that someone else didn’t do in the 80s. Please Horry, that was a terrible example. So that’s some great finals fodder to take us away from the dynasty discussion. Are the Spurs a better team than those 80s squads like he says?
