Former Chicago Bulls guard Randy Brown declared bankruptcy after being fired as a Sacramento Kings assistant coach. A federal bankruptcy judge in Sacramento has given West Auctions, of Woodland, Cal., the job of auctioning Brown's 1996, 1997 and 1998 NBA championship rings.
West said it will take a big man to wear the jewel-encrusted rings. The first two are size 12-1/4, and the last is size 12-1/2.
"Very big," said auctioneer Daniel West, one of the firm's co-owners. "If you can palm a basketball you have to have pretty big fingers."
The bidding will begin May 19 at $19,000, a price that West said is far below the rings' value in every sense of the word.
"They were appraised -- just the jewels and the precious metals -- at about $40,000, and that's not the collector's value," he said.
This is UNBELIEVABLE!!!
Any real Chicago Bull fans out there with $70,000 just laying around would buy those rings and give them right back to Randy Brown because he was a big part of winning them and he earned them.........BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!
