He had it and then he lost it. In a report by TMZ Sports, 2x NBA Champion JaVale McGee was the victim of a home burglary, in which one of his two Championship rings was stolen from his crib in Los Angeles.
The L.A. home of Lakers center JaVale McGee was burglarized over the weekend — with scumbags stealing everything from cash to an NBA Championship ring, TMZ Sports has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us … McGee only discovered the burglary Tuesday, but surveillance footage shows the incident took place on Saturday.
We’re told the thieves stole TWO safes from the home which contained at least $200k in cash and jewelry — including one of the two rings McGee won during his stint with the Golden State Warriors. Unclear which ring was taken.
According to TMZ, a surveillance video has been found and is being investigated by police. No arrests have been made.
This summer, JaVale re-upped with the Lakers where he will hope to win his third NBA Championship. Though his role with the team is limited, he is expected to hold an important purpose for the team — especially in light of recent injuries.
Last season, McGee averaged 12 points and 7.5 rebounds alongside LeBron and Kyle Kuzma.
