Colorado Celebrates the Denver Nuggets Victory With Championship Rings
When Denver's professional basketball team first started out in 1967, they were a part of the American Basketball Association as the Denver Larks. Cut to 2023, when the team became NBA Champions for the first time.
With all that's included with winning the championship, the parade, the accolades, the team's banner being hung up at Ball Arena, there's the ring that everybody gets. It's a big ring, that's for sure; it's well-earned.
The Denver Nuggets are the 2023 NBA Champions. It feels good to say, after so many years of "not so great" teams. Michael Malone's team has been "on fire" for a few years, including the "Big Win" in the summer of 2023.
HOW MUCH IS THE DENVER NUGGETS' CHAMPIONS SHIP RING WORTH?
It's reported that each Championship Ring costs between $50,000 and $150,000. Even at the bottom end, that is an expensive ring.
The Nuggets officially received their rings on the night of their first game of the season, at home versus the Los Angeles Lakers.
Not only did Denver win, 119-107, but their Championship Banner went up into the rafters, and they got their rings.
THE DENVER NUGGETS NBA CHAMPIONSHIP RING HAS TWO COOL FEATURES
- THE RING CELEBRATES THE TEAM'S HISTORY AS WELL AS THE 2023 CHAMPIONSHIP
There is a small dial on the side of the ring; it starts out saying "1967." As you look at the top of the ring, the "inside" is blue. When you turn that dial to the next position, "2023," the blue turns gold, as in a gold nugget and the golden trophy.
- THE RING IS ACTUALLY TWO RINGS
The entire ring is very large, so if the owner wants to go out and celebrate Denver's championship, a small version of the ring is inside. It's the Championship Banner in the ring.
Denver Nuggets Center, DeAndre Jordan, shows you how the ring works:
