Slava's a trooper. Huge respects to him for going from picking up a basketball to picking up an AK-47 and fighting for his country!

If I had the money, I would definitely go for the 2000-2001 championship ring. This was the one where Shaq and Kobe went 15-1 in the playoffs!

It'll be even better if Shaq or the Laker organization could win those rings and give them back to him when the war is over so he doesn't have to lose his rings.

    "In this moment I just decided, ‘Why do I need these rings if they’re just sitting in my safe?’” I just recognize I can die. After that, I just say I have to sell them to show people leadership, to help my Ukrainian people to live better, to help kids.”

Shaq should buy them like he did to Bill Russell's.

Rings of a forgotten dynasty and rings of an embattled nation.

Long live Ukraine.

Lakers governor Jeanie Buss just presented Slava Medvedenko with replacement championship rings at a Lakers fan event after he sold his to help his home country of Ukraine fight the war against Russia.
