We have seen athletes called out about a lot of things, but this latest one about a player being responsible with his money is a new one.
Los Angeles Lakers star Jarred Vanderbilt is trending on social media after a clothing store called him out for purchasing $2,000 worth of clothes that he wore before the playoff game against the Golden State Warriors and then afterward.
Once the game was over, Jarred Vanderbilt reportedly returned his clothes to the store.
He is now being called out for being fiscally responsible by an employee from Saks.
The Los Angeles Lakers defensive ace enjoys the challenge of guarding players like Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.
Vanderbilt stood up to the task throughout the night for Game 1, making Curry work for his points which is as good as anyone can ask. After the victory for the Lakers, he spoke about his work on the defensive end of the court.
“Like I said when I got here, I want those types of assignments,” Vanderbilt said. “I feel that’s how I can impact this team and bring value to this team.
“I think that’s my calling on this team. I like those matchups, those challenges and that’s what I’m here and to do.”
Curry shot much better in Game 2 even though he took 12 fewer shots, but that had more to do with the overall blowout in the game.
The series now shifts to Los Angeles for Games 3 and 4.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
