Former Lakers forward A.C. Green has three championship rings stolen
Police in a Los Angeles suburb say that former Lakers forward A.C. Green had three of his world championship rings stolen, reports the Daily Breeze, a Torrance, Calif. newspaper.
The rings are estimated to be worth $25,000 each and were allegedly stolen by workers Green hired to move some belongings into storage.
Green won three championships with the Lakers in 1987, 1988 and 2000 and retired after the 2001 season. Green holds the NBA record for playing in 1,192 consecutive games.
From the Daily Breeze report:
“To him, [they are] priceless,” Palos Verdes Estates police Sgt. Steve Barber told the paper. “They are worth a lot of money, especially to somebody who is a collector. It’s going to be really difficult for somebody to pawn it off.
“We put out our bulletin to all the local agencies to get the word out,” Barber said. “Now with this story, the public will know and we can hopefully get their help. There are plenty of Laker fans in L.A. who wouldn’t want one of the best players who played for them in a long time to lose his rings. “
