Horry, who played for the Crimson Tide from 1989-92, had a tremendous career in the NBA. He won NBA titles for multiple franchises over his 15-year career, and earned the nickname “Big Shot Rob” for his clutch performances.
His most famous shot came in the 2002 Western Conference Finals. After Sacramento Kings big man Vlade Divac tipped back a rebound, Horry got to the ball and drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Lakers the win. LA ended up winning the series in seven games, and eventually the NBA title.
Alabama also sent out a tweet congratulating Horry on this accomplishment:

During Horry’s time at Alabama, he helped lead the Crimson Tide to 3 SEC Championships and two Sweet 16 appearances.
Horry’s seven NBA titles are tied for seventh-most in league history. Every player above him featured on the 1960s Boston Celtics. Since 1994, no player has won more NBA rings than Horry.
Horry was one of 102 current or former athletes to graduate from Alabama this weekend, according to Alabama’s athletic department.
