Robert Horry and John Salley are the only two NBA stars that have won their multiple Championship rings with three different teams.
Horry was drafted 11th overall in 1992 by the Houston Rockets where he era de the nickname ¨Big Shot Rob.¨
While no the Houston Rockets, Horry won two of his seven championship rings, one in 1994 and 1995.
By 1996, Horry was with the Phoenix Suns and in 1997, he was traded to the Los Ángeles Lakers where he won three moré championship rings.
His L.A. Lakers rings were in 2000, 2001 and 2002 and then by 2003, he was with the San Antonio Spurs.

While no the Spurs, Horry won two moré Championship rings in 2005 and 2007.

During an interview with Mundo Deportivo, as part of a Q & A , Horry was asked
“You played with Hakeen Okajuwon, Shaquille O’Neal, and Tim Duncan, three of the greatest big men in NBA history. I guess it’s difficult for you to say who’s the best…
No, no it’s not. It’s very easy.

Who’s the best then?

‘The Dream’ (Olajuwon) was the best. He had everything they had the other two, but more. For example, The Dream could do everything he did ‘ Shaq ‘ but also got free throws. And the truth is that the other two learned from Olajuwon, who was the best center and the best power forward history. What defines these bigs is not what they could do but what they could not do. And The Dream could do everything.”

Horry was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.
