The rings feature Grant’s last name, number, and the team’s post-season and regular season records.

The Chicago rings feature the Bulls logo or name on the top of the ring, while the Lakers ring features two Larry O’Brien trophies for the team’s back-to-back titles.

The rings are all a size 12 and have “14k Jostens” on the interior band, per TMZ.

For all those with a little extra cash looking to add to their bling collection, the auction will run until August 27.

Grant played 17 seasons in the league averaging 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists.

He was a one-time All-Star and four-time All-Defensive Player.

The 1993-94 season, when Michael Jordan announced his first retirement, was arguably Grant’s best, averaging 15.1 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 3.4 assists.

In post-season play, Grant averaged 13.3 points in 1991, 11.3 points in 1992, and 10.7 points in the 1993 playoffs for the Bulls.

He averaged 6.0 points for the Lakers in 2001 when they won their second title of three during the Kobe-Shaq era.

Also known as “The Enforcer,” Grant played seven seasons with the Bulls before joining the Orlando Magic and helping that team go to its first title series in 1995 with Shaquille O’Neal and Penny Hardaway.

He played with four teams (Chicago, Orlando, Los Angeles, Seattle) during his NBA career before retiring at the end of the 2003-04 season at the age of 38.

In 2009 Grant was appointed NBA Goodwill Ambassador, and in 2016 he became a Special Advisor for Michael Reinsdorf, president and chief operating officer for the Chicago Bulls.

Grant’s identical twin brother Harvey also played in the NBA for 11 seasons with the Washington Wizards, Portland Trail Blazers, and Philadelphia 76ers.
