Fancy standing tall with a real American MBA player? Now's your chance! American basketball player Rob ‘Mr Big Shot’ Horry dunks into Abu Dhabi this week. The 42-year-old played 16 seasons in the NBA, winning seven championships. He is one of only only two players to have won NBA championships with three different teams, twice with the Houston Rockets, three times with the LA Lakers and twice with the San Antonio Spurs! The six foot ten sports star now works as a sports commentator.
He’ll be at the helm of a men’s-only basketball bonanza running as part of Abu Dhabi SportsFest. The winning team will get a masterclass with Rob himself! Teams of four will play three games on 24 July or 25 July before the final on 26 July.
Rob's just the latest star to take part in the event. Retired British tennis ace Tim Henman was in town as part of the tennis tournament. Meanwhile, football is the next sport on the agenda. Andrew Cole, former Manchester United and England striker, will be at the helm from 31 July until 3 August as part of a football 5's tournament. The winning team will again get a private coaching session with him!
