Bill Sharman PublicistNBA legend Bill Sharman is one of only three people to be inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach. He won four NBA championships in the 1950s and 60s with the Boston Celtics and went on to coach the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers to the 33-game winning streak that the Miami Heat was unable to top this season.

Although nearing his ninetieth decade, Sharman has continued to be a fixture in the Lakers’ organization for as a team consultant for the past 40 years. The team has won 11 championships since moving to Los Angeles in 1959, and Sharman has been there the entire time.

Through his Bill’s “Ring of Hope” campaign, he is raffling off his most recent Lakers championship ring, from the 2009-10 season in order to benefit a long list of nonprofit organizations.

Sharman’s wife Joyce told USA Today, “It’s $2 a ticket, a minimum of five tickets. For the everyday man, you could have a piece of Lakers history, this magnificent ring, owned by a two-time Hall of Famer, while also making a difference in the world.”

The raffle will benefit a number of charities including The James Worthy Foundation and Metta World Peace’s Xcel University.
