“If you go out and compete, and do everything you’re supposed to do win that championship, you’re the champion” – Robert Horry

Robert Horry joined Bet Online’s Fandemic Roundtable to discuss the challenges athletes will face in the post pandemic world of sports.

With the topic of asterisks brought to the table, Horry shot down the idea that the 2020 NBA Champions deserved an asterisk due to finishing the season in the bubble. Horry defended their 1999 Spurs championship as well, since some put an asterisk due to a lockout.

Horry shared the opinion that all teams going into the bubble share the same advantages, and disadvantages so they’ll all just go out and compete. 

The worlds flipped upside down since the All-Star break, and players will be entering an environment and circumstances that they’ve never experienced before. Containment and months away from their families is a tough task. 

Athletes are creatures of habit and routine, this new way of life goes completely against that. If anything, winning a championship in these circumstances should be celebrated to a higher degree than a normal year.

The NBA will crown a champion in their bubble. The NHL will in theirs also. Major League Baseball will celebrate a World Series title at the end of their 60 game season.

All three will he played under new and changing circumstances, all three champs should be celebrated for their successes.
