Robert Horry’s 17-year-old daughter died today after battling a rare genetic condition. Here’s more from the AP story: “Ashlyn Horry was born in Houston in 1994 and eventually diagnosed with a rare chromosome disease that is characterized by intellectual disability, delayed growth, seizures and respiratory problems. Horry and Ashlyn’s mother, Keva, set up a foundation in 2008 to provide support to families coping with similar illnesses.”
Horry won seven NBA championships with three teams, including three with the Lakers to start the 2000s. His buzzer-beating 3-pointer in Game 4 of the 2002 Western Conference finals against the Sacramento Kings will live in Lakers lore for generations.
