Nearly seven months after celebrating an NBA championship on the court with the Toronto Raptors, Jeremy Lin finally received his championship ring this week and showed it off with pride.

Lin, who signed to play in China this year after a lack of NBA interest, took to Instagram ton Thursday to share the beautiful ring he worked so hard to earn during his 10-year NBA career and finally got to hold.

The 31-year-old shared in July during an emotional moment shared how it felt like the NBA had given up on him and years of feeling like he kept hitting rock bottom.

After going through so much emotionally and physically in recent seasons, it’s great to see Lin receive something that made all of his hard work worth it and a ring that only a select few ever get to have.
