Boston Celtics superstar Jayson Tatum apologizes to a fan for dropping chalk powder on his boots, promising the fan a pair of game kicks for the next game he comes to watch.
If you’re a basketball player, sneakers are not only a necessity but a hobby, as well. And if you play for the NBA, there is no shortage of supply when it comes to the latest and best kicks in the market. However, the sneaker culture has found itself a place in the ordinary individual’s wardrobe, too.
No matter which type or size they are, shoes have a special place in every person’s wardrobe. Obsession for footwear is not limited to only sneakerheads, and Jayson Tatum understood this the hard way.
While hosting LaMelo Ball and co at the TD Garden, the Celtics forward dropped chalk powder on the black boots of one of the members sitting in the front row. Though the audience didn’t make a hue and cry about it, Tatum did face heat for it on social media.

Jayson Tatum has his own Jordan signature line on the way.
The Celtics superstar had signed a deal with Nike’s Jordan brand in 2019. However, he didn’t have the slightest clue of having his own signature line with the iconic brand. Over the years, Tatum has worn a variety of Air Jordan’s 34, 35, and 36, with each pair having a special meaning to it.
