The 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers won 69 regular season games, breaking the previous record for wins in a season held by the 1966-67 Philadelphia 76ers. Along the way the Lakers won 33 consecutive games, an NBA record that stands to this day. McMillian replaced an injured Elgin Baylor nine games into the season and the team immediately launched their streak. McMillian was dominant in the postseason, averaging 19.1 points per game in the playoffs. The Lakers made quick work of the Bulls and the Bucks before defeating the New York Knicks in five games in the Finals. It was the franchise’s sixth NBA Championship, the first for the Lakers since moving to Los Angeles. This size 13, 14k gold player’s ring weighs 37 grams. It was presented to Jim McMillian after he and the Lakers won the 1972 NBA Championship. The top panel reads “NBA WORLD CHAMPIONS” in relief surrounding a silver basketball with a .90-carat diamond in the center. The right panel reads “J. McMILLIAN” above the casted imaged of the Lakers logo, the facade of the LA Forum, “33 STRAIGHT” and “69-13”. The left panel reads “1972” in relief surrounding the casted image of the official NBA logo. The inside of the ring is stamped “BALFOUR 14K”. The ring is in NRMT condition and is accompanied by a LOA from Jim McMillian.
