Former NBA player Robert Horry was ejected from his son’s high school basketball game Friday night after yelling from the stands at the referees, according to a video posted on TMZ website.
Horry, who won seven NBA championships and was known by his nickname Big Shot Bob while playing, took some jabs at the official as he was being ejected from the Harvard-Westlake game against St. Francis (La Canada, Calif.). . The video shows him yelling “You’re disgusting” at the refs, and as a security officer approaches and appears to be looking at Hori, the former NBA player says “Hey ref, are you talking about me? You’re not worth it.”
He walked through the stands and said a few more words to the referee before walking toward the exit of the gym and stopping to speak with the Harvard-Westlake coach.
Here is the full video posted by TMZ.
According to the outlet, Horry was furious after his son, 6-foot-3 guard Christian Horry, was called for his fourth foul. Harvard-Westlake won 68-55.
He has since taken to Twitter to offer an apology:
The passion I have for basketball goes beyond words…words made me throw my son’s game away. Emotions are part of sports and always will be, whether you are playing or a fan, I have been both. Respect the game and all participants, yes. Basketball unites in many ways.
