HOUSTON — The Houston Astros aren’t the only ones getting World Series Championship rings. A member of the Houston Rockets organization was lucky enough to receive one as well.

Astros owner Jim Crane presented Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta with one of the coveted rings Thursday night at the Rockets’ matchup against the Portland Trailblazers.

Crane told Fertitta, “When you win a world championship, I get one.”

Fertitta responded via Twitter, “Absolutely, Jim! Thanks for mine!”

Crane wasn’t the only member of the Rockets organization at Thursday’s game. Astros ace Justin Verlander and wife Kate Upton were spotted courtside. Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was also in attendance alongside Missouri City native rapper Travis Scott.
