Fortnite is a free video game—unless you're Kendrick Perkins.

On an episode of Hoop Streams on Tuesday, the former NBA star revealed his kids spent so much money on the game that his credit card got declined:

Far be it from us to criticize anyone for spending money on video games—no, you may not look at my credit card statements to see how much I spent on NBA 2K VC this year—but $16,000 on Fortnite? Sixteen thousand dollars?

For the sake of all involved, let's hope Perk's children utilized that money to become the greatest Fortnite players on the planet. If that's the case, the $16,000 will simply be seed money to the best investment he's ever made.
