The Golden State Warriors had a very good time on Tuesday night as the 2022-23 NBA season began.
Not only did the Warriors make light work of the Los Angeles Lakers, but they also got to celebrate the year they just had and receive their newest championship banner.
Aside from hanging that banner from the rafters, the team got to put on their new rings too.

The latest championship rings are downright gorgeous.
The golden jewelry was on display for the fans to see and they looked better than any that have come before.
Obviously, winning the NBA Finals is about more than getting super expensive rings but these are downright fantastic and give a huge incentive for other teams to take down the Warriors.
More Rings On The Way?
The players on the team looked elated to get their new rings and were showing them off to one another, the fans, and their friends and family.
It seems as if the act of actually putting these pieces of jewelry on makes the recent Finals win all the more real.
It also seems like it makes them want to win again even more.
The Warriors are definitely a favorite to go far in the postseason this year – and there are more than a few people predicting they win back-to-back Finals.
To do so, they will need to push through a stronger Western Conference and an East that is determined to take them down.
That will be tough to do, of course, but no one should count this team out.
They took a few years off and had to rebuild and get back into fine form but the Warriors are again the best team in the NBA.
