Jayson Tatum is by far one of the most exciting players to watch in the NBA today. The 6’8″ forward is the man to watch out for on the Boston Celtics.

Given how incredible he has been, it comes as no surprise that Gang Green has long-term plans for him. Especially considering they handed him a massive $163 million contract not too long ago.

That is a lot of money, to say the least. A lot of money that Tatum has been told he cannot spend.

$163 million is no laughing matter. The Celtics have decided to invest a lot in Jayson Tatum.

Nevertheless, it cannot be said that JT doesn’t deserve the money. However, in a strange turn of events, he isn’t allowed to spend any of it, thanks to a deal he made with his mother.

Jayson made the deal with his mom before he got drafted. Which raises the question, what money does he spend?

Well, while he can’t touch his contract money, his mom has permitted him to live off the money he makes on endorsements. Needless to say, Tatum goes all out with that.
