    Description

    2000 Los Angeles Lakers NBA Championship Ring Presented to Stan Kellner Gifted by Mitch Kupchak. Mitch Kupchak never forgot his roots. The man who helped guide him through the high school ranks was Stan Kellner. It was Kellner who coached at Brentwood High School in New York from the 1960's until the '80's. One of the men he helped mold into an NBA player was Kupchak. Following the team's title in 2000, Kupchak gifted this hefty size 13.25 ring to the man who spurred him to a collegiate career at Chapel Hill.

    This shimmering creation is identical in every regard to those who earned their own on the court. The face announces "Lakers" surrounded by ten diamonds and twenty-nine filling in the front. "World Champions" is expressed on front. Ten diamonds decorate the sides as well. The left shank is engraved with the recipient's surname and boasts the Lakers' stat line below: "67-15 15-8" which refers to the Lakers' overall record and playoff record. The opposite shank reads "Bling Bling 2000" above an image of the Larry O'Brien Trophy, complete with an inset diamond. There are no engravings on the inner band of the 14k gift. The original box is included. A letter of provenance from Kellner's widow will also attend. Letter of provenance from Martha Kellner.
