la-lakersOct 27, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Prior to the much anticipated clash between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers, the ring ceremony that awarded the NBA Champions with their rings took place. Tuesday night was a big night for the fans and players alike as the players and the coach took over the microphone to express their emotions after winning the ring. Ron Artest said that it was an honor to get the ring and they worked very hard for it. He added that the Los Angeles Lakers were in a new mission this year. Considering that the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will both be looking to dislodge the Los Angeles Lakers from the top spot, the season this year promises to be an out and out thriller.

Kobe Bryant, who received his fourth ring, did what he usually did with them. Putting it on only for a few moments before taking it off, the MVP said that it was special to see the entire city backing the team. Shannon Brown on the other hand showed great excitement about the ring and said that nobody could take this moment away from the team. Coach Phil Jackson raised up the diamond encrusted beauty up in the air and said that this was what his team played for.

This year some of the teams have shown great promise not only in their rosters but also in their opening performances. In spite of the Miami Heat losing to the Boston Celtics in the season opener, LeBron James proved his mettle by scoring the game high 31 points. On Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Houston Rockets in a nail biting thriller (112-110).
