NBA posts championship rings for each playoff team, even Nets
The NBA posted championship rings for all 16 playoff teams to its social media accounts on Friday to get fans excited for the playoffs, which beginning Saturday.
For many of the rings, fans were fairly receptive to the marketing, even though many of the teams would face tough roads to the Finals. The reception for the Nets ring was a little different though.
People also had a difficult time believing the overachieving Boston Celtics would be going very far.
While the internet is sure that the Nets will fail, Las Vegas is giving them a better shot to win their opening series against the Hawks than the Western Conference 8-seed Pelicans have to beat the top seeded Warriors, according to CBS Sports.
