Tough loss for my Bulls today...

At least they lost to the BEST player in the league...

Wade remembers how to play... beats mediocre team. LeBron looks foolish.

Going to be a good season.

I really thought the Clips were going to pull off the win last night. They may still suck, although I'm still hoping for that 8th spot, but they'll be one of the exciting teams this year with Gordon and Griffin.

Awesome vid:



The LA Lakers recently received their 16th Championship rings in a unique ring ceremony at the Staples Center, where each player was introduced by another team member. Just like the rings from the year earlier, these were created by Jason of Beverly Hills and are a step up in terms of value due to the 16 carat gold and 16 large white diamonds. Not only did these rings raise the gold and diamond count, they've also made history by incorporating a piece of leather material from the 2010 NBA Finals Game 7 ball. There's no word on the exact price, but I'm pretty sure it's much higher than the $30,000 ring the Lakers won last year. Also, you probably remember that after the Lakers won the championship game, one of the first people Ron Artest thanked was his psychiatrist. Well it looks like he's putting his money where his mouth is by auctioning off his ring and donating the proceeds to mental health charities.

For being a giant/gaudy/16 diamond championship ring, it's actually pretty understated. The game ball under the ring = nice touch. Also, it just dawned on me that Adam Morrison gets one of these...to go along with his other one. LULZ.

He has more rings than the big 3 in Miami combined.

I think I'll start a thread called 'What Can Lebron/Bosh/Wade do to surpass Morrison/Mbenga/Walton'

???? I think I change my mind. The actual ring part is weird. Reminds me of this:

I think the shape is suppose to represent the rings net net more than anything. That would be my guess at least. First thing I though of when I saw the shape was actually the NBA Finals Trophy, just squared off.

holy shit 24 assists for rondo tonight. The guy's a monster even if the Celtics kind of clunked past the knicks.
