A day after watching Phil Jackson show off his 11 rings to promote his new book and twitter account, we get some messed up news about somebody stealing 3 rings belonging to Lakers legend and Iron Man AC Green. Green suspects that it was movers he hired to move his belongings into storage.
The stolen rings include his 87 championship over the Celtics, 2000 with Phil Jackson over the Pacers and his 2009 Lakers ring (?). We all know that the Iron Man played a lot of games and never sat out but I don’t recall him lasting until 2009. Actually, the franchise gave him a ring after beating the Orlando Magic in 2009. His championship ring from 21 years earlier was not stolen.
I really hope he gets his rings back. We had the pleasure of working with AC during the LA Sprite Showdown 2 years ago and I also worked with him while he was trying to get a 3BA franchise started in Houston, TX. Great player, great guy, great jheri curl, great high top and a very intelligent businessman.
