LA Lakers gift Kareem Abddul-Jabbar a 578-diamond ring

Los Angeles Lakers are known for treating their stars and legends like no other franchise in the world.

This statement is hard to deny if we take into account the gift they have kindly given away to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the 38th anniversary of his NBA scoring record.

The legendary center has received a ring made up of 578 diamonds. It is very similar to the ones usually awarded to the champions of the American major leagues.

Priceless value

The franchise has omitted to reveal the value of the jewel, although being a unique design means that it is surely much higher than the already ostentatious champion rings.

For instance, the value of the ones handed to the Toronto Raptors in 2019 was estimated at more than 100,000 euros.

The front of the ring reflects the mythical silhouette of Abdul-Jabbar performing one of his famous hooks.

The side highlights the 38,387 points he scored during his career and the date on which he broke the record previously held by Wilt Chamberlain (April 5, 1984).
