    2001 Los Angeles Lakers NBA Championship Ring Presented to Johnny Grant. They called him the honorary Mayor of Hollywood, and an intersection just north of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue bears his name. Best known for hosting more than 500 celebrities as they were inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Grant was best friends with Lakers owner Jerry Buss, who presented him with this highest symbol of basketball achievement in 2001.

    Identical in design to those earned and worn by Shaq and Kobe, the ring contains thirty-nine yellow diamonds with the following white diamonds used to fill in the two Larry O'Brien trophies: 22 full cut white diamonds pave set in the trophies which equal .27 carats. There are also two .25 carat cut diamonds which represent the basketballs. Two more .15 carat diamonds are showcased on the sides. "World Champions Lakers" surrounds the perimeter. One shank reads "Grant 15 1 56 26" (playoff record, regular season record) while the opposite side has a Lakers embossed emblem and "Back 2 Back 2001" in a triangular formation. This was in reference to Phil Jackson's triangle offense which he popularized. Inner band is stamped "14K" and measures to a size ten. Fine condition. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
