Andre Roberson responds to bad tip controversy on Instagram
Andre Roberson is defending his $13.97 tip.
After a picture appeared on Twitter on Thursday, calling out the Oklahoma City Thunder wingman for leaving a 2.8 percent tip on a $487.13 bill, Roberson decided he needed to set the record straight.
In the post, Roberson says he already tipped the bartender $200 before he purchased the bottle in question, and his family and friends know he is actually a "great tipper." He also made note of his botched math ($487.13+$13.97=$501.10 not $500), and says that can be attributed to the drinks he already had.
Whether it was one bottle or not, between the new contract and the bad math, Roberson is going to have a tough time saving face on this one.
The original Twitter exchange is below, along with some additional commentary from Roberson's teammates Steven Adams and Enes Kanter.

Maybe next time Roberson goes out for drinks, he'll make sure to bring Adams and Kanter along to handle the tip.
