    1976 Boston Celtics NBA Championship Ring Presented to Team Physician. From 1968 to 1987, Dr. Thomas Silva was the director of health services and team physician of the Boston Celtics. During that twenty-year period, Boston won seven NBA crowns and Silva kept players like Bill Russell, John Havlicek, Dave Cowens, Larry Bird, and Dennis Johnson is peak condition. On offer here is Dr. Silva's championship ring from the Bicentennial year when Tommy Heinsohn's fleet-footed starting five of White, Scott, Hondo, Silas, and Cowens downed Westphal and the upstart Suns in dramatic fashion. "Balfour 14k" gold ring reads "NBA World Champions" around real diamond-centered basketball at top. Shanks read "1976, Teamwork" with NBA logo and "Silva, Boston Celtics, Pride" with Larry O'Brien Trophy. The ring is a size 10.5 and weighs 46 grams.
