“Ok guys I´m done, I´m gonna hit the showers a lil bit earlier tonight!”
So what really happened? At first Robert Horry himself didn´t remember the situation when he saw this photo last year. When Howard Beck (New York Times) tweeted this photo and asked if Horry could explain what happened, he got a response- ”What the hell? I don´t remember that at all.” Later though, Horry tweeted “I think it was the time my string broke in my shorts.” Indeed, the Lakers had some problems with their shorts during the playoffs in 2002 against the Kings.
The Times says Robert Horry played several possessions in Game 5 with his shorts nearly falling down. At one point he held them up with one hand; later he had them taped. In Game 7, Kobe Bryant was forced to the bench for nearly a minute when his drawstring snapped in the second quarter. While teammate Lindsey Hunter held up a towel for cover, Bryant pulled on a new pair in front of thousands of fans and a national TV audience. – sfgate.com
