TMZ claims that one of Kobe Bryant's LA Lakers Championship Rings has just sold for $206,000, and it's allegedly the one he gave his mother years ago. 

Kobe Bryant had a total of five championship rings with the LA Lakers, and he gifted one of them to his mom, Pamela Bryant. Now, TMZ reports that the particular 14k gold-and-diamond ring given to Pamela has just sold for $206,080.

When Kobe won his first championship with the LA Lakers during the 1999-2000 season, he purchased identical rings for his parents. Back in the day, his mom Pamela tried to sell the rings along with his jerseys and other memorabilia until Kobe sued her to try and stop the sale.
