NBA perspective Cassius stanley just cut a new piece that would make the Gloved Proud – a diamond pendant from Michael jackson doing his iconic tilt from the “Smooth Criminal” music video !!
TMZ Sports learned … the first round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft hit Personalized jewelry Clarity, a black-owned business in Los Angeles, to get a personal gift before hitting the pros.
Jeweler Courtney roy tells us the ex-Duke Guard is a HUGE fan of the King of Pop … so it was easy to decide what he wanted to get – a pendant in the shape of Jackson’s tilt pose from the 1988 music video!
You know what we’re talking about … about 7 minutes after the start of the video, MJ and his dancers defy gravity by leaning at a 45 degree angle. It’s crazy.
Roy tells us it took 3 different designs to get it right for the 20 year old baller … but ended up with a product adorned with white gold and 3 carats of VVS diamonds.
Roy – who also designed jewelry for Shareef O’Neal and Patrick beverley – said this MJ track is one of his favorites and was delighted (haha, pun intended) to bring it together.
No word on the price of the piece … but the guy is a few months from the collection … so treat yourself !!
PS – for those who didn’t know, Jackson actually used a special shoe with a heel slit to help him achieve the movement. Cheating? Kinda. Still dope.
Our sincere thanks to
