NBA SEASON TIPS OFF: IT’S DIAMONDS AND DUNKS FOR THE LAKERS

The 2009/2010 NBA season is officially underway! This year promises to bring great ball and lots of surprises, with stories that have already made headlines. Here’s a quick recap: Shaquille O’Neal has joined the Cleveland Cavaliers who have started the season at 0-2, Ron Artest is now playing on the L.A. Lakers, Vince Carter has teamed up with the Orlando Magic and No. 1 draft pick, Blake Griffin, is already out with a broken knee cap. But team changes and injuries aside, it was the L.A. Lakers who certainly kicked off their season in style.

The reigning champs received their 2008/2009 championship rings during a pregame ceremony, before beating the L.A. Clippers in their season opener. And let’s just say that “bling” is an understatement. Each ring was made of 15-carat gold (instead of 14-carat gold, to commemorate the Laker’s 15th championship win) and featured a laser engraved image of each player’s face! As if that wasn’t enough, the top of the ring included a white-gold image of the Larry O’Brien championship trophy surrounded by 15 diamonds. Are you drooling yet?

And the commemorative gear doesn’t stop there. On November 1, Adidas Originals is releasing a special edition metallic gold and purple “Los Angeles Lakers Superstar” shoe. The shoe’s tongue features the team logo and the insoles include the magic number, yes you guessed it, 15. A little flashy, but Glam Gal welcomes the metallic hue as opposed to the signature yellow. You can pick up a pair of these kicks here, or at the NBA store and other Adidas and Lakers stores.
