Who else got their mom a new Cadillac for Mother's Day? No? You just got her a 3 dollar card? C'mon man step up your game! Terrence Jones, though yet to sign an NBA contract as he is also yet to be drafted...as he just finished his sophomore campaign at Kentucky, did buy his mom a Cadillac SRX SUV. Not bad for a kid that is still technically a "student athlete"...
Here is the pic of Mommy Jones -

Of course the money likely came from Jones' new agent Arn Tellem (advance loan that Jones will then payback), but one can't resist thinking that a Kentucky player who played for the greasiest of greasy college basketball coaches in John Calipari may have obtained the money in ways that could be frowned upon, by some, in the NCAA.
Now that he's declared for the draft and signed an agent, the NCAA doesn't really care about him anymore.
Yet, if I am Coach Cal, I'd be telling my players entering the draft to throw ol' coach a bone and not start blowing money like crazy prior to actually being drafted. Seeing guys that still are technically Kentucky Wildcats buying Cadillacs, pretty much plays into all the stereotypes that I, and many others, have about the inner workings of the building of the one and done title winning, Calipari era, Kentucky squads.
Nice gift for Mother's Day Terrence, and I can't say I wouldn't do the same, but the question that must be posed now is; what do you get her for her birthday to top it?
