Offered here is the very 14K gold 2000 Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers NBA championship ring gifted by Kobe to his father Joe “Jellybean” Bryant, who played eight seasons in the NBA and recorded a career scoring average of 8.7 points per game. Obviously proud of winning his very first NBA Championship, Kobe ordered an extra copy of the majestic ring he was issued to give to his father, Joe Bryant, as a special gift. This is not an executive version of the Championship ring, but the same EXACT ring given to Kobe Bryant and other Lakers players. This very ring sold for over $173,000 in 2013 and a ring of this magnitude is similar to the Tom Brady Super Bowl Ring (family version) that sold for $337,200, which was a smaller version of the original player ring. 

The Lakers won the 2000 NBA title in a six-game series over the Indiana Pacers after Los Angeles posted a remarkable 67-15 record during the regular season under head coach Phil Jackson. Bryant averaged 22.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists during the year while Shaquille O’Neal dominated the league, posting averages of 29.7 points, 13.6 rebounds and 3.0 blocked shots per game.

This ring is in Kobe's ring size 11 ½ and weighs approximately 59.6 grams. This exquisite ring features a total of 40 diamonds, including five larger round diamonds on either side of the face, which displays “LAKERS” filled with purple enamel. “WORLD CHAMPIONS” reads in relief lettering. The NBA league logo centers one side, with the name “BRYANT” at the top and the number “8” at the bottom. Also appearing are banners that reveal both the Lakers regular season mark of 67-15 as well as their postseason win-loss record of 15-8.  An image of a basketball hoop – with a diamond as a basketball – appears on the opposite side along with “BLING BLING” and “2000”. The inside of this ring is marked 14K. Obtained directly from the Bryant family this ring is a true one of a kind and we can confirm that it is the only Championship ever given by Kobe to his father. This ring comes with a LOA from Pam Bryant. Kobe will be inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2020, and this ring (along with the ring given to his mother which sold in Goldin Auctions Spring 2020 auction for $201,250.00) is the only championship ring or award of Kobe Bryant ever to come to market, and is a rare opportunity to own such a prestigious ring.
