Numerous fans measure the greatness of a player based on the number of NBA championships he won in his career. On the other hand, there is also a considerable amount of NBA players that never won a championship and therefore is their legacy less valuable than of players that won an NBA championship.

Robert Horry won 7 NBA championship with three teams in his illustrious career, but he was always a great role player, never the star on any of these teams. In a recent interview for TMZ, Horry said people are stupid if they say they measure the greatness of a player through how many championships he won. He mentioned the likes of Barkley, Ewing, and Malone as some of the examples of players that are HOF's but never won a ring.

"Here's the thing that people are so stupid about. They measure great players by how many championships they win. It's the stupidest thing. That's like saying Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, and Patrick Ewing are not great players."

Horry believes people who never had any relevant experience playing professional basketball are the ones who are making these comments, which he describes as idiotic.

"All these other idiots who don't play basketball and never played basketball, when they say you wanna judge a guy's greatness by a number of championships ... they're idiots."
