Clippers’ forward Marcus Morris celebrated his brother Markieff’s ring ceremony with the Lakers ahead of season opener.
The Los Angeles Lakers just had their ring ceremony for the 2020 Championship. It was a hard-fought battle in the Orlando bubble, and they deserve the felicitation. The Lakers decided not to hang up their 17th banner till the time their fans are back with them.
The NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Lakers’ owner Jeanie Buss, and GM Rob Pelinka were present for their ring ceremony. Instead of getting rings from the Commissioner, this time the Lakers had the players’ families record a video for them while they get their ring.

The twins have always been close, but each getting picked by a LA team last year got them back in the same city as well. The two share a joint account, in which they deposit their NBA salaries together.
The Clippers start their redemption season tonight. They did not have the best season back in the Bubble, and they would look to repair their tarnished reputation. They have added a few pieces to their roster and extended Paul George’s contract for 5 years. The Clippers would hope they improve the performance over what was there last time around.
The Lakers on the other hand start their journey to defend their championship tonight. They won their 17th title in the Bubble and they got their ring for the same tonight. If tonight’s first match, the Warriors vs the Nets is any indication, the Nets are going to be a tough nightmare for any team to face.
