Kobe Bryant’s Father Auctions Replica 2000 Lakers NBA Championship Ring

309

Kobe Bryant, the late basketball star, has put his son’s 2000 Los Angeles Lakers NBA championship ring up for auction on Goldin. The 14K gold, 40-diamond ring, which spells out “LAKERS,” “WORLD CHAMPIONS” and “BRYANT,” along with his jersey number, “8,” in gold, is not the original version, as Kobe ordered this as an exact replica specifically for his father. 

The 2000 season was a memorable one for the Los Angeles team, as Kobe won five total championships during his career with the Lakers.

After Kobe Bryant was presented with the ring, he presented it to his parents as an indication of his appreciation. 

It was the first time that his parents considered selling the ring in 2013, along with an extensive collection of memorabilia from Bryant’s career. This was the first time that they had considered selling the ring.

Kobe Bryant, the late basketball star, has put his son’s 2000 Los Angeles Lakers NBA championship ring up for auction on Goldin.

He filed a lawsuit against Joe and his mother Pamela, claiming that he had not granted them authorization to sell the artifacts. Joe was the deceased player. 

They were finally able to come to a contract, and Bryant’s parents expressed their regret for any confusion or inadvertent hurt that may have been caused by the auction memorabilia.

When considering the fact that Kobe, his daughter Gianna, who was 13 years old, and seven other family friends were killed in a helicopter accident in January of 2020, critics of Joe’s decision to put the ring up for offer asked why he would not wish to preserve the artifact. 

The connection between the late superstar and his parents was tumultuous, and there were allegations of a breach in their relationship dating back to the year 2001. 

As of Thursday afternoon, the price of the ring has reached $141,000 because of the fact that the bidding on it will conclude on March 30.
