Is Michael Jordan the GOAT? We know what we think after watching “The Last Dance,” but there’s no doubt about these basketball couples’ engagement rings: they’re clearly among the all-time greats.
We’ve binged “The Last Dance” and the truth is, we’ve got basketball on the mind. With no live sports currently in sight, who could resist revisiting those legendary plays? The giants on the court clearly don’t skimp on showmanship off the court, either. We’ve found NBA greats who have proposed with some seriously impressive bling. These NBA couples’ engagement rings are just like Michael: they turn it on, and never turn it off!
You’ve seen “The Last Dance,” now check out these NBA look-alike engagement rings:
Michael Jordan & Yvette Prieto
We love celeb engagement rings, but His Airness took proposing to the next level. The star of “The Last Dance” – proposed with a split-shank pavé stunner, graced with a clear-as-ice emerald-cut center diamond. Wow. Now that’s our kind of championship ring.

Scottie Pippen & Larsa Pippen
Scottie Pippen gifted more than a few diamond rings to his then-wife Larsa Pippen, and one of our favorites is definitely this unbelievably sparkly three stone engagement ring with a HUGE 14 carat, pear-cut center diamond. And the best news is – you can score this lookalike for yourself.

Magic Johnson & Cookie Johnson
Magic & Cookie celebrated their 25th anniversary with a truly hefty ring featuring a 25 carat, emerald-cut center diamond. That’s one carat for each year of marriage. If you adore Cookie’s bling but, like us mere mortals, have your sights set on a diamond a few carats smaller, this lookalike ring is for you: the halo makes the center diamond look bigger than it actually is!

LeBron James & Savannah Brinson
Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James proposed to high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson with a beautifully simple three stone engagement ring. This star couple put their own unique engagement ring with a diamond in a variety of trending shapes: a shining pear-shaped diamond flanked by two baguette-shaped diamonds for backup.

Dwayne Wade + Gabrielle Union-Wade
This NBA/Hollywood power couple got engaged with a flat-banded solitaire engagement ring featuring a positively enormous, 8.5-carat cushion-cut diamond.
