Lakers Ring Ceremony, Lakers get leather-bound rings

Tuesday’s ring ceremony offered another nice touch in the way it allowed each Laker to introduce their teammates, handing the mic over after offering a few reverent sentiments. Nothing really stood out — a beaming Ron Artest(notes) didn’t say anything outrageous — though special assistant coach Rasheed Hazzard (son of NBA legend and former Laker executive Walt Hazzard) could not have been happy at being passed over by also-legendary Laker public address announcer Lawrence Tanter during the introductions of the assistant coaches. Look at how he awkwardly tries to get into the frame after Tanter calls Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s name out. If the Lakers win it again this year, I say they pass over Kareem next October. It’s only fair.
