Robert Horry Ejected From Son’s Basketball Game After Screaming at Referee

Former NBA champion Robert Horry was filmed being ejected from his son’s high school basketball game last week after he was viewed yelling at a referee from the bleachers.

TMZ posted a video of the moment the seven-time NBA Finals champion was tossed out of the gym by the referee. Horry, who has won more championships than Michael Jordan, was a spectator at St. Francis High School, which is located in Flintridge, CA where his son, Christian Horry was playing basketball for Harvard Westlake.

Robert’s son plays the guard position and was called for his fourth foul of the game. After witnessing what he thought was a bad call, Horry started to yell at the ref, according to witnesses.

The video below shows Horry screaming in the bleachers at the referee, “you suck!”As he is doing so, the referee is pointing, to what looks like security personnel and as they look in his direction, he yells out, “Hey ref, you talking about me? You suck! Oh, you’re mad at me because I said you suck?”

As Horry is heading down the stairs to leave, he steps on the gymnasium floor and as he is being escorted from the gym, he stops to speak to his son’s coach, they hug and he proceeds to vacate the premises.

Horry posted an acknowledgment of what transpired at the school on his Twitter account.

“The passion I have for basketball goes beyond words..words got me tossed out my son’s game. Emotions are a part of sports & always will be whether you play or a fan, I’ve been both. Respect the game & all those involved, yes. Basketball unifies in many ways.

Horry, who retired after the 2007-2008 NBA season played in the NBA for more than 15 years. He has won 7 titles with three different teams throughout his career. His first two were with the Houston Rockets, then he achieved three more with the Los Angeles Lakers and took two more home when he suited up for the San Antonio Spurs.
