The 2001-02 season proved to be the pinnacle of the Los Angeles Lakers’ Shaq/Kobe dynasty as the dominant squad swept the New Jersey Nets in four straight games in the NBA Finals. In doing so, the Lakers became only the third NBA franchise to win three straight championships, joining the Boston Celtics from the 1960’s and the Chicago Bulls of the 1990’s. Shaquille O'Neal, who averaged 36.3 points and 12.3 rebounds in the Finals, was named MVP of the series for the third consecutive year—at the time joining Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson as the only others to accomplish this feat.

Presented is Samaki Walker's 2002 NBA World Championship “3-Peat” ring. The 14-karat gold player’s ring pays homage to the Lakers’ historic “Three-Peat” and the iconic triangle offense installed by head coach Phil Jackson. The lovely face has "Lakers World Champions” surrounding a triangular purple amethyst bordered by the words "Back Back Back" to commemorate the three NBA titles in a row. In addition, three triangular diamonds are set atop a bed of 61 smaller diamonds, along with 14 brilliant cut diamonds around the perimeter bezel, for a total of 2.45 carats. The right shank is embossed with the Lakers logo, "Slam Dunk," "2002" and the image of a microphone with the name "Chick" -- a salute to longtime Lakers play-by-play man Chick Hearn who passed away after the season. The left shank has "WALKER" and the number "52," plus the team’s regular-season "58-24" and playoff “15-4" records on each side of the NBA logo. The "14K" hallmark is stamped inside the band. The ring is a size 11 and weighs about 65 grams.
