Beverley recently said on a podcast that former colleague Russell Westbrook would like his ring if the Lakers won the title this year. Before the trading deadline earlier this year, the Los Angeles Lakers traded Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverley. Beverley joked that he wanted one too, and if the Lakers win the championship this year, it appears like they will both get their wish.
According to CBS Sports, the Lakers told Chris Haynes, a sports reporter for TNT, that if the club makes it all the way, they will give everyone on this year’s roster a championship ring, even if they are no longer on the team. Besides the current Lakers team players, 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. – Steve Sijenyi
