That is Los Angeles Lakers’ great Bill Sharman’s 2010 NBA championship ring. It is being raffled on Friday with the proceeds going to benefit Sharman’s favorite charities. Cost is $2.00 a ticket with a minimum purchase of 5 tickets. (That’s $10 for the Steelers’ fans out there.)
Get your tickets here. It is the closest you will ever get to owning an NBA ring, though I suppose not many Celtics fans will want to buy tickets.
- Winner will receive two time Hall of Famer Bill Sharman’s original 2010 NBA Championship Ring (The ring features two Larry O’Brien trophies representing the back to back titles made from a custom batch of 16KT gold and the final score of the Lakers 83-79 game seven victory over the Boston Celtics is represented on the side of the ring in scoreboard fashion.)
- Winner and guest will enjoy premium seats to an LA Lakers game
- Winner will receive a travel allowance of $4,000 (if needed, if used) to put towards airfare, hotel and ground transportation for winner and guest
- Winner will receive a cash prize in the amount of $8,146.25 to mitigate the Winner’s tax liability that results from winning the raffle. This prize is withheld and paid, on behalf of the Winner, directly to the IRS ($6,860.00) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ($1,286.25)
