NBA player rightfully roasted for leaving puny tip after signing $30 million contract

NBA player Andre Roberson snagged a three-year, $30 million contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday. Then he went out with buddies and celebrated by leaving a $13 tip on a $487 bar tab.

But this is 2017, where the internet does not simply let a transgression like this pass.

Moreover, Roberson actually made the whole episode look even worse when he defended his stinginess after being called out on Twitter.

Couple things to point out here before we move on with our story.

  • First, David, it's "you're" not "your."

  • Second, Andre, on top of everything else, your math is off. The correct tip to reach an even $500 on the bill would be $13.87, not $13.97.

Roberson tried to move on from the episode after his miserly tip became an internet story — but teammate Steven Adams wouldn't let the issue pass so easily.
