Avery Gets Another Ring...From the Saints

Avery Johnson has an NBA championship ring from the Spurs and thought he had another with the Mavs in 2006, but couldn't get over the hump.  But now he has an NFL championship ring, from the Saints, for motivational speaking.

At the beginning of 2006, Sean Payton, the Saints head coach, had Johnson in to speak with the Saints.  The then Mavericks close had all the prerequisites: the ring he won in 1999, his coaching experience and most importantly, a connection to New Orleans, his hometown.

As SB Nation reported, when the Saints reopened the Superdome with a victory in 2006, Johnson met with the team in the locker room and received the game ball. 

He's been a fixture at games since, as a guest of owner Tom Benson and when the Saints won it all, he was on the field with Payton.  Now, Mark Spears tweets, Payton has returned the favor, giving Johnson a Super Bowl ring.  Now, he's wearing a Yankee cap. Hmmm.
