Kobe Bryant’s 2000 Championship Ring Gifted to His Father Goes Up for Auction

Kobe Bryant’s dad, Joe “Jellybean” Bryant, has decided to sell Kobe’s 2000 Los Angeles Lakers NBA championship ring.

The ring had been gifted to Kobe’s parents, who had previously thought about selling it in 2013, but had kept it instead. The ring up for auction is not the team-issued executive version, but a duplicate that Kobe had ordered for his father as a special gift.

The auction for the ring will end on March 30, and at present, the highest bid is $94,000. The description of the item states that the ring is one-of-a-kind and was given by Kobe to his father.

Made of 14-karat gold, the ring weighs 59.6 grams and boasts 40 diamonds. The words “WORLD CHAMPIONS,” “LAKERS,” BRYANT,” and “BLING BLING” are engraved on it.
