Paige Fertitta and Kim Wilson, Director of Tiffany & Co. invited guests for cocktails and to see the reveal of the Larry O’Brien Trophies handcrafted by Tiffany & Co. Larry O’Brien trophies are awarded annually by the National Basketball Association to the NBA championship winning team. The team commissioned two replica trophies to reside in Houston after the originals were kept by former Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander after he sold the team to new owner Tillman Fertitta. The replicas permanent home will be at the Toyota Center in the team’s offices. Some in attendance were Clyde Drexler, Jonathan Martin, Melinda Spaulding, Calvin Murphy, Robert Horry, and Mike D’Antoni.
