    Default Bernard King sells his HOF ring and trophy

    He got about 75K for both. After waiting so long to get admitted you would think he would have held on to these mementos and enjoyed them before selling them or even handing them down to his kids. Only reason I can think he sold them was because he needed the money. But 75k and less after taxes was it really worth it.

    I hope it was for charity or something, because things like that aren't awarded to you very often. I also hope he isn't/wasn't in need of the money. I wonder how much MSG was/is paying him for broadcasting. I saw him do some NBA TV too.

    you'd think if people have the sale info, they'd also know why he was selling. too bad players don't automatically get $100G's just for being inducted. the oldtimer's pay is a meager percentage of what players make nowadays. shame.
