Kids with hoop dreams tested their skills against former Houston Rockets player Robert Horry on Saturday.

Horry shared tips with kids at a BBVA Compass NBA "Team. Works. On Tour" event at the Toyota Center.

The children got to shoot hoops on the Rockets' home court and compare themselves to handprints and shoe sizes of pros like Dwight Howard and Blake Griffin.

Houston was the final stop on a six-city tour that also included San Antonio and Denver.
