    Ron Artest Announces The Winning Bidder Of His Championship Ring






    After his team suffered a disappointing loss in the hands of the Miami Heat with the score of 96-80, Ron Artest immediately departed from the Staples Center to attend the granting of his NBA 2009-2010 Championship ring to the winning bidder. The bid was said to be amounting to 500,000 dollars.

    This act of giving the 500,000 dollars to the Xcel University charity by Ron Artest was said to be for the Mental Health of those who are afflicted with mental and psychological disease. Artest also suffered a mental disease and he's just returning the favor to those people who helped him recover and once again be in his normal condition. He's able to help others and at the same time, he said that it encourages him to win more rings.

    After their Christmas day loss against the Heat, Artest immediately went to a nearby club accross Los Angeles. In the club, he announced the winning bidder. It was a Saturday and it's Christmas and so many onlookers were able to witness this heartwarming act by a former rowdy Indiana Pacer.

    The winning bidder was Raymond Mikkael. He is a father of four who came all the way from Hawthorne, California.

    Artest said, “It’s a good feeling, because it got a lot of publicity, and that’s cool, I’m glad we can start over now and do some more work with charities."

    He also said, “I’m so anxious to get out at it again, I get more fuel, I burn it all up. I’m motivated."


    The championship ring is made up of 16 oversized white diamonds representing the Lakers’ titles. It also has insignias of two championship trophies made of 16-karat gold. On the one side of the ring, is a three-dimensional likeness of the player receiving it.

    With what he did, his only wish is to have a tax exemption directly from President Obama because of their high cost of living.
