Basketball and the hitting component of baseball are two different things. But even so, this reputation of Horry's is based on 4-5 shots spanning an entire career. Maybe he just had some skill that showed up in those situations. Maybe those 4-5 shots just so happened to be the normal percentage of shots that went in the hole, but just so happened in critical times of the game. I'm not suggesting it's one or the other. But I don't think you can assume causation over that few plays over the course of a career. Horry's 3 point % for the regular season was 34%. It was 36% in the playoffs. His overall FG % was 42.5% in the regular season and 42.6% in the playoffs. My guess is he was the same player.
