Aaron Gordon Gifts Jamal Murray Diamond Pendant
According to TMZ, Gordon gifted Murray a diamond pendant ahead of the NBA Finals, which began on June 1. The pendant is shaped like a bow and arrow, a nod to Murray’s sharp shooting and signature archer celebration. Furthermore, the pendant included Murray’s initials and his jersey number, 27. Gordon had it done at Mile High Jewelers in Denver, with an expedited turnaround so it would be ready for the Finals. However, even with an expedited turnaround, the piece still took ten days to make. The pendant includes ten carats of white and blue WS diamonds.
“[Aaron] wanted to show his appreciation for his outstanding play, effort and being a great teammate/brother during his time in Denver,” the jeweler explained. Gordon and Murray have been teammates since 2021 when Gordon was traded to Denver by the Orlando Magic. Gordon still has three years left on his contract with the Nuggets. Meanwhile, Murray has two years left on his contract. The NBA Finals continue on June 4, with the Denver Nuggets leading 1-0 in the series. What do you think of Gordon’s gift?
