I’m actually a fan of Ron Artest. I know he’s an asshole but he’s also a really good player. He certainly tries his hardest each game. Either way, if you’re a fan or not. You can be the proud owner of an NBA Championship ring for a measly $2…well actually $10 as you have to purchase a minimum of 5 raffle tickets. All-in-all, it’s pretty cool because for one you may win an awesome prize for hardly anything and secondly (and more important) all the proceeds are going to help out children with mental health issues.
Join Ron Artest and Xcel University in their efforts to support mental health awareness and treatment for children and you could win Ron Artest’s NBA Championship Ring and an expense paid trip to LA to meet Ron Artest and enjoy premium seats at an LA Lakers Game.
Winner will receive Ron Artest’s original NBA 2010 Championship Ring (See More Photos ) The ring includes the following features:
Each and every ring is adorned with a piece of the actual ball used in game seven of the 2010 NBA Finals
The two Larry O’Brien trophies representing the back to back titles are made from a custom batch of 16kt gold.
16 oversized round brillant white diamonds indicate the 16 championships the franchise has won.
Each player is immortalized with a three dimensional sculpture of their face on their respective rings.
The final score of the Lakers 83-79 game seven victory over the Boston Celtics is represented on the side of the ring in scoreboard fashion.
