38.  Robert Horry
If you look at the career statistics or even the season stats of Robert Horry, you would not think that he belongs on this list at all. However, the man known as “Big Shot Rob” won seven NBA Championships with three different teams, and was known for always performing in the clutch. It was not a misnomer, as constantly when the need was at its greatest, Horry was at his best.  Those seven championships were no accident and though his stats do not reflect it, this was a player, everybody wanted to have on their team.

Horry's clutch play makes him worthy in my opinion. Everyone says Duncan, Kobe, Shaq, Olajuwon won him those titles. It's a team game and based on his clutch shots, it's arguable that he actually won them some of those titles. He was a key player for Houston. After that he was a solid producer off the bench but his real contribution was in the last seconds of the game.

The fact of the matter is that without him, NBA history might be completely different. His clutch 3 over Sacramento was huge - yes the refs did put him in a position to hit that but he still had to execute. His 3 for the Spurs buried the Pistons in 2005. Those are just a couple off the top of my head - when you search it, he has numerous huge shots in the playoffs. I think he deserves it for changing history the way he did.

TheBayAreaGu y and Cris David are clueless fan boys. Big Shot Bob, as he was actually known, was truly a key factor only in Houston. In L.A. it was Shaq & Kobe. In S.A. it was the big three of Duncan, Parker and Ginobli. If those last 5 guys mentioned didn't put in the top quality work to put them in the position to win, then Horry's 3s wouldn't have mattered. You don't make the HOF based on a handle of shots, Cris. Damn. It's about the whole body of work. He was NEVER a dominant player. Ever. Not even close.

Robert Horry deserves to be in the HOF because he is an x-factor, an impact player and a difference maker. He may not be a starter or he may not have the stats or awards to back him up, but he has that very important ability to make shots at the most difficult or pressured times that he can win a ballgame (even the big games) singlehanded ly for your team.

Horry is easily the hardest man to rank. "Big Shot Rob" is loved by Bill Simmons (which means a lot), but putting a bench guy in the Hall seems so strange to many. He might be the Charles Haley of the NBA Hall.

He should be in the top 10....he won SEVEN titles, SEVEN. And he was a key player on every single title.
