Odell Beckham Jr. isn't the only player to wear expensive accessories in-game

Sep 10, 2019

Kelly CohenESPN

"Corners wanna check him like Odell Beckham [Jr]."

Rick Ross said it best when he rapped on his song "Lamborghini Doors" in 2017.

Indeed, Beckham draws attention from cornerbacks because of his speed and awe-inspiring catches. But this week, the Cleveland Browns receiver's signature style caught the eye of NFL, as the league spoke to the star about wearing a watch during Sunday's game.

Known for being flashy off the field as well as on, the star wore a limited Richard Mille watch that retails at $190,000. According to NFL spokesman Michael Signora, there are no rules prohibiting jewelry -- but the league policy does prohibit "hard objects."

Beckham had a cryptic tweet on Monday, likely about the watch debate.

If ain't one thing.... it's another...

— Odell Beckham Jr (@obj) September 10, 2019

And he said Tuesday that he is going to keep on wearing it in-game.

OBJ's bling got us thinking ... what other expensive items have been worn by professional athletes in games?

Alvin Kamara

The New Orleans Saints running back donned some serious ice in his grill for the first Monday Night Football game of the season.

In that thriller of a game -- the Saints won in the last second -- Kamara had 13 rushes for 97 yards, and seven receptions for 72 yards.

J.R. Smith, Kelly Oubre Jr.

The self-proclaimed "Wave Papi" was able to wear a red Dri-Fit Nike shooting sleeve emblazoned with the Supreme font in white in December 2017.

According to The Undefeated, Oubre, who was with the Washington Wizards at the time, had to change at halftime. The sleeve violates Article XXXVII, Section 2, Paragraph A of the NBA's collective bargaining agreement.

Smith was playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers when he donned a black-and-white version of the sleeve, which got praise from The King himself.

The streetwear brand Supreme is worth $1 billion, according to GQ. Unfortunately, Supreme hasn't been seen again on shooting sleeves.

Serena Williams

The style of the greatest tennis player of all time has certainly evolved since making her professional debut on the court in October 1995.

At the US Open in 2005, Williams wore both a $40,000 pair of 13-carat platinum chandelier earrings and a bright diamond necklace.

"It's really nice. My stylist pulled it for me. I fell in love with it," Williams said after her third-round win. "It's a lot of diamonds."

Though she still wears jewelry, the 37-year-old is now more known for her on-court clothes.

For this year's French Open, Williams paired with famous designer Virgil Abloh for a black and white two-piece Nike set that had a matching cape with "Mother, Champion, Queen, Goddess" written in French.

Bubba Watson

The golf star has been wearing expensive watches to tournaments since 2011, but according to Business Insider, he began wearing pricier pieces when Richard Mille began designing him watches in 2014.

The latest one worn at the 2018 Masters -- the RM 38-01 -- retails for $825,000, and only 50 were made by the luxury watchmaker.

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal and Richard Mille have a relationship that dates back to 2010, when the latter made an exclusive ultralight watch for the Spanish tennis star.

Worth $525,000, only 50 were made of the RM 027 Tourbillon, which Nadal had a hand in "testing and designing."

Most recently at the 2019 US Open, Nadal cruised to victory for his 19th Grand Slam again in a Richard Mille watch -- but this one was worth $725,000.

Yoenis Céspedes

The New York Mets outfielder was probably happy he signed a four-year, $110 million contract in 2017 -- because replacing a diamond necklace sure isn't cheap.

In May 2018, the star snapped his diamond necklace sliding into second base.

You really hate to see that.

#Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes roped a double and broke his diamond necklace in the process 😅pic.twitter.com/xolT2xeNdh

— Def Pen Sports (@DefPenSports) May 3, 2018

We're looking forward to the bling Céspedes will sport when he comes back from injury next season.

Mallex Smith

What better way to honor your home state than with a custom silhouette of it done in all diamonds?

This outline of Florida is worn by the Seattle Mariners outfielder, and it includes a black diamond over his hometown of Tallahassee.

"i like to think that it could maybe grab the interest of other black young men that may like it and see they're allowed to have a personality in this sport too." pic.twitter.com/Hpi8zQDbhi

We really don't disagree with the decision to have a constant reminder of the warmth provided by the Sunshine State.

DeAndre Hopkins

Kanye West's Yeezy brand is a staple among the coolest athletes, so it was no surprise the Houston Texans wide receiver decided to step out in the cleat version of the popular shoe.

Next level. Thank you @adidasFballUS and @kanyewest pic.twitter.com/4kfnN9C38P

— Deandre Hopkins (@DeAndreHopkins) September 9, 2016

But unfortunately, Hopkins -- who signed an endorsement deal with Adidas -- was fined $6,000 for wearing the "Turtle Dove" Yeezys in the 2016 game. The Yeezy 350 Cleat was released in September 2016 at a retail price of $250 and is no longer available online.
