If Lakers Win Championship, Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverley Would Receive Rings

Before the trading deadline earlier this year, the Los Angeles Lakers traded Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverley. On a recent podcast episode, Beverley stated that former teammate, Russell Westbrook said if the Lakers win the championship this year, he wants his ring. While laughing, Beverly said he wanted one too. It looks like they will get their wish if the Lakers win the championship this year.

According to CBS Sports, the Lakers have informed sports reporter, TNT’s Chris Haynes that they will give everyone who was on this year’s roster, despite them not being on the team anymore, a championship ring if the team takes it all this year.

It all started last week when Beverley said on his podcast that he had run into Westbrook at the gym. He recalled, “Russy goes, ‘Hey, Pat. Lakers win, I want my ring,'” Beverley said. He told Westbrook that he will also be waiting for the ring with him. “I ain’t gonna lie, Russ. We’re going to be suited and booted, boy. I’m going to be right there, waiting on that ring.”

Haynes reported that the team has confirmed that not only would Beverley and Westbrook receive rings if the Lakers win, but others who were on the roster this season will also get one.

“Now, if the Lakers were able to win the whole thing, win a championship, I was told by a high-ranking source within the organization that they would extend a championship ring to all players who were on the roster at any point during the regular season,” said Haynes.

“That means, if the Lakers win the whole thing, Russell Westbrook, Patrick Beverley, and others will receive a championship ring. I was told that was a protocol in the system that was put in place by Rob Pelinka when he took over. It’s just a way to make sure players understand that they value them, even though they didn’t make it from beginning to the end of the season with the Lakers.”

Besides the current players on the Lakers team right now, eight former Lakers would be eligible to get rings. Those players are Westbrook, Beverley, Kendrick Nunn, Matt Ryan, Damian Jones, Thomas Bryant, Sterling Brown, and Juan Toscano-Anderson.
