Robert Horry won a lot championship during his illustrious, 16-year NBA career; seven to be exact, making him one of nine players with at least seven championship rings. He’s also one of four players to win championships with three different teams. LeBron James, Danny Green and John Salley are the others.

However, three of Horry’s championship rings stand out from the rest and they’re the three things he won with the Los Angeles Lakers from 2000-2002. Only three teams in NBA history have accomplished a three-peat and Horry was on the last one.

On today’s podcast, Robert Horry sits down with “Can U Dig It?” crew to discuss the many challenges that come with winning championships in consecutive years and how this year’s Lakers can overcome them. He also shares how Lakers fans can get involved in helping Pepsi create a new anthem for the team ahead of their postseason run.

Before they get into all of that, though, Christian and Jacob discuss the Lakers’ recent struggles, the probability of them falling below the No. 5 seed and the questions that they’d like to see answered in the final 12 games of the season. Then, they talk about the latest news surrounding the team, including a possible summer contract extension for Frank Vogel and LeBron James’ return.
