Justin Bieber gets Phil Jackson's championship ring ... on loan
Chances are, after you realized that wasn't Tom Brady sitting courtside for the Lakers' season opener Tuesday night in Los Angeles, you had one of those orange-juice burps when you realized Justin Bieber was wearing a championship ring.
The ring was only a loaner. Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, companion of Lakers Coach Phil Jackson, let the pop tot wear Jackson's ring. The championship bling was presented in a ceremony before the Tuesday night game.
Each ring, designed by Jason of Beverly Hills, has a piece of the ball from Game 7 of the Finals embedded in it and features two trophies (for the back-to-back feat), 16 diamonds for each championship and a likeness of each player.
