Take that, LeBron. Justin Bieber got a ring before you.
The larger-than-life pop star attended Tuesday’s Lakers season opener and apparently got the superstar treatment — complete with a championship ring.
Seems that Jeannie Buss, daughter of team owner Jerry Buss, is a sucker for Bieber, and she told TNT’s Cheryl Miller that she convinced Phil Jackson, her other, slightly older crush, to let the 16-year-old heartthrob wear his championship ring, which was presented during a pregame ceremony, during the game.
With 11 rings, Jackson does seem like the guy to ask for a loaner. But if Bieber wants one to keep, Ron Artest is auctioning off his ring to raise awareness for mental health.
