Kobe Bryant’s 2000 NBA championship ring, initially gifted to his father, Joe “Jellybean” Bryant, is now being auctioned by Goldin Auctions, with the current leading bid at $94,000. Notably, it’s the same ring Bryant and his fellow Los Angeles Lakers received upon winning the championship, although it’s not the executive ring given directly to players. Bryant ordered an additional ring to gift his father, making this the only one he ever gave him. The ring, made of 14 karat gold with 40 diamonds, bears Bryant’s name, the Lakers’ regular-season and postseason records, and the inscription “bling bling” along with the year 2000. Despite the sentimental value, this isn’t the first time memorabilia gifted to Bryant’s parents has appeared on the market, with a past lawsuit limiting the number of items that could be sold.
