Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom pawned his two NBA Championship rings a few years ago at the height of his struggles with drugs, and now the jewelry is set to be offered to the general public in an auction.
According to TMZ Sports, Odom’s two NBA championship rings are going to be put up for auction and could fetch as much as $50,000 apiece.
Odom earned the rings when the Lakers won back-to-back NBA titles during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons. The veteran forward played for the franchise from 2004 to 2011 and saw the bulk of his success in with the team.
The rings feature an engraving of Odom’s face on the side, contain tons of diamonds, and the 2009-10 championship ring is engraved with the Lakers’ 65-17 record that season.
The memorabilia is being put up by Heritage Auctions and comes with their original display boxes, so a potential buyer would be getting the total package. The bidding is expected to open in February and close later in the month.
