Lakers will give Bradley a ring if they win title

"Oh, yeah, Pat brought his rings out. It looked just like a Crown Royal bag," Bosh said. "He puts it down, like boom. Big-boy talk. When he ended the meeting, Pat gave me a 2006 Heat championship ring."
Riley told Bosh to keep the ring and give it back once he won one of his own. Bosh went on to win back-to-back titles with the Heat in 2012 and 2013, and yet the 2006 ring remains in his possession.

Bosh officially retired from the NBA on March 26, 2019 - the same day the Heat raised his No. 1 jersey to the rafters at AmericanAirlines Arena.
