When the mother of former Kentucky forward Terrence Jones returned home to Portland on Sunday night after spending the day with his son in Los Angeles, he found the last day she surprises waiting for him.
Parked in front of Linda Mashia-Jones is the new Cadillac SRX Crossover with the giant red ribbon.
Jones tweeted pictures of cars while his mother was on his way to Portland as well, joking with his followers that none of them have to call or text him to spoil the surprise. Mashia-Jones seemed quite delighted with the gift to his son later tweeted a picture smiling beside the vehicle.
"Loved to hear how happy she was," Jones wrote. "Can not wait to watch the video."
Cynics questioned where Jones get the money to buy a car costing between $ 36,000 and $ 55,000, but with a relatively clear explanation. Jones signed with Arn Tellem reported from Wasserman Media Group the previous week. And agents typically provide a future lottery pick up a hefty advance for the players and then pay the loan after they sign their rookie contract after the draft.
Regardless, for once, let us celebrate the generous act of researching it. Many players said they would use their first paycheck to buy for family members who raise them. Jones actually followed up with it.
