Lakers’ Title Ring Can Be Yours For Only $22,500

The hype machine is in full throttle for the Lakers & the Celtics, as the long-time rivals renew acquaintances in the NBA Finals. So, why not hype yourself up even more by acquiring a real Lakers championship ring?

Lakers Championship ring for sale

DEADSPIN lets us in on the sale of the century, as eBay bounces along some basketball bling-bling up for bids.

The ring is from the Lake Show’s 1999-2000 season - Shaq & Kobe’s first championship together. And what better chance to remember the halcyon days of Lakers harmony than with this sweet piece of hand jewelry.

Or what better item for a Celtics fan to purchase - just to smash it to pieces with a hammer.

The auction will last until next Tuesday, June 10. Bidding starts at $22,500 - so any belligerent Boston bidders better be billionaires.

Just for fun, take a gander at the ‘99-’00 L.A. roster and try to guess which former (or current) Laker really requires the moolah.

Maybe Shaq needs help on payments for his new Phoenix pad. Maybe Kobe needs to buy a new pair of Hyperdunks. Maybe Glen Rice needs it for home repairs. Maybe Rick Fox & John Salley need it for acting lessons. Maybe Tyronn Lue & John Celestand need it - period.
