New York Knicks forward Malik Rose reported to San Antonio police today that thieves stole $220,000 worth of jewelry out of his home when he was out of town late last week...including the 1999 and 2003 NBA championship rings he won while a member of the San Antonio Spurs.

Also stolen from an entertainment center in Rose's home in the exclusive Greystone subdivision in far north San Antonio are a diamond chain valued at $110,000, a $50,000 bracelet, and a $40,000 Jacobs and Company diamond watch.

"Doing detective work in the past, I can tell you that this isn't a very hard case to identify what was taken," police sergeant Gabe Trevino told 1200 WOAI news.

Detectives say several contractors were in Rose's home doing remodeling work while the player was in New York last week, and they're currently focusing their investigation on them. Trevino said there was no sign of forced entry.

The NBA championship rings, which are valued at $10,000 apiece, have the word "Rose" written in diamonds on the side.

"If somebody tries to pawn them or sell them, it will obviously raise a red flag," Trevino said. "That's what we would hope, but we obviously don't deal with the smartest criminals out there."

Rose told police he has left a message with the contractor telling them that the property was missing and he was calling police.

The thieves were apparently not interested in the championship ring Rose won while at Drexel University in his hometown of Philadelphia, it was still in its box, untouched.

According to unnamed witnesses, Isiah Thomas was seen fleeing from the scene, allegedly while muttering about a promise he had apparently made to James Dolan of delivering a championship ring to NY someday. Neither Thomas or Dolan could be reached for comment.

When I win several rings as the Knicks starting SG, I'll make sure they're all safely locked up

Didn't know they had that feature on NBA Live.

Glad to hear Malik got them back, whether they're ours or not...it's nice to have some rings in NY.
