    A Los Angeles Lakers NBA Championship Ring Gifted to Stallone by Shaquille O'Neal, 2002.
    Visually stunning prize from the Shaq & Kobe dynasty of the L.A. Lakers was presented by the former to Stallone to commemorate the franchise's fourteenth NBA Championship in 2002. It's identical in design to the one worn by O'Neal himself. The triangle theme on the ring face makes note of this third consecutive trip to the mountain top, with the amethyst at center bordered by the word "Back" on three sides, as in "Back to back to back." Fourteen brilliant cut diamonds adorn the bezel, where raised lettering reads " Lakers World Champions." Sixty-one yellow diamonds are set in the ring face, as are three larger triangular cut diamonds representing each Championship. "O'Neal" stands in raised lettering upon the left shank, and below the design makes note of the team's regular season (58-15) and playoffs (24-4) records. Right shank features team logo, year " 2002," and a tribute to Chick Hearn, whose last game at the mike would be the Lakers' 2002 Championship clincher. Interior band is stamped " 14K" and measures to a size thirteen. The ring is housed in its original hinged wood presentation case with an engraved plaque on the lid attributing the ring to Stallone. Mint.

    "I knew Shaq pretty well and I said, "Lets' do a little trade. I'll give you something from Rocky and you give something from your world," and he says, "OK." So I get this box that says "Sylvester Stallone" and this gigantic ring comes out. This is his championship ring -- it's extraordinary! I've looked at it for many, many years and I thought, "Wouldn't this be extraordinary for someone else to have who's a real, real basketball fan?" Thank you, Shaq!"
