The Lakers 2009 championship rings were given out on Tuesday night. These 2009 Lakers championship rings are pretty flashy, and could put any ring you have seen before to shame. The glitz and the glamour of the Lakers 2009 championship rings are almost overkill, but when championships in professional sports are so hard to come by, it’s almost understandable. These Lakers championship rings aren't going to be soon forgotten either, and their sheer weight looks to be to build up those arm muscles.
The 2009 Lakers championship rings were created by Jason of Beverly Hills, and were made with a special batch of 15-karat Laker gold to commemorate their 15th NBA championship. The statistics don't end there though, as the ring has 15 diamonds in it, weighing a total of 2.85 carats. It's a remarkable looking ring that is setting itself apart from some of the past Lakers championship rings because of the details on the side.
Each of the 2009 Lakers championship rings have the individual players name and number, but there is also an engraved image of the player to add that special personal touch for these players. To take it even further than that, the rings are shaped in the image of Staples Center, where the Los Angeles Lakers play all of their home games. It's pretty remarkable both in shape and size, and something that is really going to help these players remember this moment in their professional lives.
The newest Lakers championship rings were handed out at the season opener for the Los Angeles Lakers before the game, with rings handed out to the personnel, coaches, and players before the new championship banner was raised to the rafters. As if that wasn't enough to totally set off the night, each of the ring recipients was also give an oversized box to place the ring where there are two LED lights built into it to help set of the "bling" of the ring.
