You can bet that “Big Shot Bob” was the only guy in the park with seven NBA Finals Championships. This weekend, TMZ Sports captured footage of Robert Horry taking a different kind of shot, though it was just as big.
While attending the Nike 3ON3 tournament at L.A. Live, Horry got into a physical altercation with a man who he says was trash-talking the whole game, then shoved him.
In the video, it is obvious that the other man made the first physical contact that escalated the incident.
Then, Horry decided to throw down.
Horry holds to the fact that he was only defending himself.
“Where I’m from, you protect yourself”, Horry said.
The NBA champion was at the event because his son was participating as a player. Sorry says this isn’t the first time this man has been verbally abusive towards the kids on his son’s team, though this is the first time the conflict has escalated to a fist fight. You can see Horry throw several blows, though it is unclear if any of them landed.
A representative for the tournament had no comment on the incident.
