    The three-peat is complete!

    2002 Los Angeles Lakers NBA Championship Ring. Like the 2001 edition that precedes this lot, the visually stunning prize from the Shaq & Kobe dynasty of the L.A. Lakers was presented to a thirty-year veteran of the franchise's front office for the team that earned its fourteenth NBA Championship in 2002. 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. The presentee's surname "Harris" appears atop the left shank, while 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.

    Many consider this edition to be the most dominant of the three consecutive Championship teams, and the four-game sweep of the tough New Jersey Nets is often cited as proof. The Finals provided Shaquille O'Neil with another Finals MVP, and coach Phil Jackson with his ninth ring to tie the legendary Red Auerbach.

    The ring presents is stunning Mint condition, still housed in its original cherry wood display box and cardboard packaging. Interior band is stamped "14K" and measures to a size nine and a half. Letter of provenance from original recipient.
