Written by Kevin Hubbell on .

"Big Shot Bob", otherwise known as Robert Horry, had a storied and championship laden NBA career.

Horry won two championships with the Houston Rockets, three with the Los Angeles Lakers and two more with the San Antonio Spurs.
 
Robert earned his nickname, "Big Shot Rob," due to his uncanny ability to hit clutch shots in big games throughout his illustrious basketball career. Spurs fans may remember the huge shot he hit versus Detroit in the 2005 NBA Finals.

Written by Paramjit Mahal on .

During the Atlanta Hawks media day, guard Jeff Teague was going over his expectations for the upcoming NBA season. According to Teague, his role will be compared to the role Tony Parker has with the San Antonio Spurs. Specifically, he sees himself being more of a facilitator and getting the ball moving.

Slow down there young buck. I am not sure if Teague will be able to handle that responsibility yet or is just brimming with over-confidence.

Written by Jeff Garcia on .

During the offseason, the San Antonio Spurs re-signed center Tiago Splitter to a four-year, $36-million deal that will keep him under contract through the 2016-17 season.

Some Spurs fans griped, feeling it may have been a tad bit more than he should have earned but in the end, keeping Splitter in the mix and maintaining team chemistry in the hopes of making another run to the NBA Finals made sense.

At Spurs' Media Day, 1250 ESPN SA's "The Hardline" caught up with Tiago where he revealed a lot including how a few teams were interested in his services but decided on San Antonio, getting blocked by LeBron James in the NBA Finals, what aspect of his game he looks to improve heading into the new season, the sting of losing in the Finals and much more.
