CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Browns safety Damarious Randall better hope LeBron James’ postseason excellence is over.
Randall promised on Twitter that if James and the Cavaliers upset the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals he would buy a jersey for anyone who re-tweeted his post. As of Tuesday afternoon, there were 334,000 re-tweets on Randall’s account (@RandallTime).
If the Cleveland Cavaliers win the 2018 NBA finals I’ll buy everyone who retweet’s this a jersey...— Damarious Randall (@RandallTime) May 29, 2018
100% chance 🤙🏾🤙🏾 https://t.co/ChKwjvHnT1— Damarious Randall (@RandallTime) May 29, 2018
Randall was acquired by the Browns in March in a trade from Green Bay. He has posted numerous tweets in the past backing the Warriors. He responded to one skeptic by saying he would “100 percent” deliver on his pledge.
Playing for one of Cleveland’s teams, however, and openly rooting against another isn’t a wise move. Also, Randall’s boast could prove expensive, but the 25-year-old did not specify which jersey he’d purchase.
Randall intends to be courtside at Games 3 and 4 when series comes to Cleveland. Game 1 is Thursday night at Golden State.
