In a recent episode of the Big Shot Bob podcast, Robert Horry revealed the gift he received from his stepdaughter during the holidays. While most people give up on their New Year’s resolutions fairly quickly, Horry’s stepdaughter gave him the perfect gift to make him do yoga regularly.

I didn’t do yoga at all last year. So Gabrielle. My wife’s daughter, my stepdaughter, she goes to yoga a lot, and she takes my yoga mat… So for a Christmas present, she got me a pass for yoga. She said, ‘You the type of person if you buy something, you gotta use it’. So she’s like, ‘Here you go,’ cause she knows I won’t let money go to waste. So I gotta use it now,” said the 7x champion.

Horry’s stepdaughter knew exactly how her father would behave. So in order to make him act on his words, she bought him a pass, so if he did not use it, he would be wasting money. Horry is the father of four children. But back in 2011, his daughter Ashlyn, who was 17 years old, passed away after a lifelong illness. From this sweet gesture from his daughter, Gabrielle, it is clear how close they are to each other.

I did not follow the traditional route to become a journalist, but my love for basketball and writing has brought me here. Seeing LeBron James?
