It’s not easy to make Kobe Bryant speechless – remember, he’s become the best interview in the league in recent years – though Jeanie Buss managed to do just that before the five-time NBA champion’s final game on Wednesday.
You see, thanks to Jeanie, Kobe got that sixth ring after all.
The Lakers’ president surprised Kobe and his wife Vanessa with “Black Mamba” rings that feature 5 large diamonds that represents his championships and 20 smaller diamonds for each year he spent with the purple and gold.
In the video below, Kobe is clearly shocked to open a couple of boxes just minutes before taking to the court only to then discover two beautiful “retirement rings” covered in diamonds.
Holy Shit: THIS 25-DIAMOND RING THAT @JeanieBuss GAVE KOBE

As you can see in the photos below (via Fox Sports) these rings are absolutely beautiful.
Someone send this story to free agent to be Kevin Durant, because the Lakers sure do look after their legends…
