Really big rings: NBA 2K23 Summer League to award championship jewelry for 2022 winner

The Golden State Warriors won’t be the NBA’s only champions to receive rings this year.

For the first time ever, the NBA 2K23 Summer League will hand out jewelry for the eventual champion.

The Sacramento Kings claimed the crown in convincing fashion last year with a 100-67 win over the Boston Celtics.

This year’s tournament has already seen the likes of Chet Holmgren, Paolo Banchero, Jabari Smith and more young stars make their NBA debuts.

The reveal of the ring received some mixed reactions online and throughout the NBA world.

“I have a real ring, me and Matt [Barnes] do,” Richard Jefferson joked on NBA Today. “All kidding aside, I think this is cool, you know. Guys are putting in work. Guys are doing the time.”

The Las Vegas portion of the NBA summer league began on July 7, and the two teams with the best records from the first four games will meet in the Championship on July 17 (3 p.m. ET, ESPN).

ESPN reporter and NBA Today host Malika Andrews provided an early look of the championship ring.
