Robert Horry explains what made the Spurs "the most boringest team"

Manu-Ginobili-Robert-Horry-Tim-Duncan

Robert Horry played for some great teams in the NBA and won titles with three different franchises. When asked about the drama in Brooklyn, Horry went the other way and talked about the least dramatic team he was ever a part of.

San Antonio Spurs "most boringest" team 

Horry played for the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, San Antonio Spurs, and Phoenix Suns. He won two titles with the Spurs but found no joy during his time there, as revealed in his podcast Big Shot Bob.

"In San Antonio, we never had any damn drama. That was the most boringest team. The most exciting thing we had was when Tony [Parker] and Eva [Longoria] started dating."

It was obviously a joke, but we all know how the Spurs operate: machine-like, efficient and effective. The players play in a system that puts a premium on sharing the ball and making extra passes. San Antonio does not have a high-flyer or a streaky shooter who makes the Top 10 plays every night, but they don't make a lot of mistakes either.

Different franchises, same winning culture

Big Shot Bob played with great players such as Hakeem Olajuwon, Kenny Smith, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker. There was some tension between O'Neal and Kobe, but they won championships together. Meanwhile, Duncan and the Spurs were dominant during their peak and won titles the Spurs way: no off-the-court drama, no on-court issues. Horry saw first hand that you can succeed in both environments if the character of the team suits the character of the stars.

Former players can't help but bring up the era they played in and compare it to the current NBA, where stars have their way over their team. There is an ongoing trend where players sign large contracts only to force a demand after a year or two, which not only sends the wrong message to teams but also sets a bad example to younger players.

Horry saw his fair share of drama and bitter contract negotiations, but it was never like it is now. There was a certain code of doing things that's gone out the window, and the NBA is worse for it.
