    Horace Grant's Bulls championship rings up for auction, expected to fetch over $100K each

    Grant, who won three championships with the Bulls between 1991 and 1993 and whose championship ring from the 2001 Lakers season is also up for auction,

    The four NBA championship rings that were won by Horace Grant are going to be auctioned off. Three of those rings were won with the Chicago Bulls when they completed their first three-peat from 1991-1993. According to Heritage Auctions, each of the three rings he won with the Bulls might sell for up to $100,000, while the ring he won with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2001 might bring in somewhere around $40,000. The bidding will continue until the 27th of August.

    On the front of each of the championship rings won by the Bulls is engraved either the team’s name or its emblem. On the sides of the rings are engravings of the Larry O’Brien trophy, Grant’s name, the year the championship was won, and the Bulls’ postseason record. In addition, a letter of provenance written by Grant himself that verifies the ring’s authenticity will be included with every purchase.

    Grant was a member of the Bulls, the Orlando Magic, the Seattle SuperSonics, and the Los Angeles Lakers over the course of his nearly two decades in the National Basketball Association (NBA). His time spent with the Bulls, who selected him tenth overall in the 1987 NBA Draft, were among his most fruitful in terms of professional accomplishment. He was a vital contributor to the team’s first three-peat from 1991-1993 and spent a total of seven seasons playing for them. Grant came up with a crucial block on Kevin Johnson in the dying seconds of Game 6 of the 1993 Finals, when the Bulls were clinging to a one-point lead to preserve the win and earn their third consecutive crown.

    Grant was a tremendous defender who was selected to the All-Defensive Second Team four times and was chosen an All-Star during the 1994 season, which was his final year playing with the Bulls. Despite the fact that his career averages are not very outstanding due, in large part, to the fact that he played for such a long time, during his prime in the middle of the 1990s, he was basically a walking double-double.

    Harvey, Grant’s twin brother, was a professional basketball player in the NBA during the years 1988 to 1999. Both Jerami Grant, who currently plays for the Portland Trail Blazers, and Jerian Grant, who played in the NBA in the past, are the sons of Harvey Grant and the nephews of Horace Grant.
