Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverley need their rings. That is, in keeping with Beverley.
If the Los Angeles Lakers win the NBA championship, it seems like they’re going to get them. TNT’s Chris Haynes reported Monday that in the event that they win the title, the Lakers intend to supply championship rings to any participant that suited up for Los Angeles this season, no matter whether or not they’re on the the playoff roster. This would come with Westbrook and Beverley.
Both guards began this season with the Lakers. Los Angeles traded Westbrook in February within the deal that acquired D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt. After a buyout in Utah, Westbrook joined the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Lakers traded Beverley to the Orlando Magic for Mo Bamba a day later. Beverley reached a buyout with the Magic and completed the season with the Chicago Bulls. Beverley stated two weeks later earlier than a Bulls-Lakers matchup that his objective was to knock the Lakers out of the playoffs.

Well, the Lakers made the playoffs. And Beverley’s probability for a hoop stays alive. He made clear on his podcast final week that he would bounce on the probability to simply accept a hoop from the Lakers.
“If they win, you name me regardless of the f*** you wanna name me, I’ma get that ring,” he stated. I would shed a tear. I’ll give a speech.”
As for Westbrook? He hasn’t said his need publicly. But in keeping with Beverley, he is in.
“Hey Pat, Lakers win, I need my ring,” Beverley stated Westbrook advised him.
The Lakers are within the playoffs thanks in no small half to their trade-deadline offers that included jettisoning Beverley and Westbrook. That apparently will not deter the 2 from accepting their first rings.
