Browns Defensive Back Makes Absurd Gamble on NBA Finals

Browns Defensive Back Makes Absurd Gamble on NBA Finals

The 25-year-old Florida native was traded to the Browns from the Green Bay Packers in March.

As of Tuesday morning, Randall's tweet had nearly 100,000 retweets.

Newly acquired Cleveland Browns safety Damarious Randall tweeted out Monday that he would buy everyone who retweeted him a jersey if the Cavaliers won the NBA Finals. As of this writing, it's up over 500,000 retweets. That's probably why Randall was confident enough to double down on the tweet after it blew up. Though it would be extremely pricey, it sounds like he is standing firm. A quick search on the NFL's shop reveals that you can get a jersey for $99.99. If the Cavs win it all and Randall has to pay up, he'd be shelling out over $77 million.

USA will continue to confront China over disputed islands, Mattis says
During the weekend, two USA warships sailed close to the Paracel Islands, north of the Spratlys, drawing protests from China. US officials say the freedom of navigation operations (FONOP) are regularly scheduled and occur globally.

In fact, he even tweeted some laughing emojis about Tyrod Taylor tweeting "Go Cavs". However, he did note that LeBron James should be this season's MVP.

While Randall would like to give jerseys to fans in the event of a Cavaliers victory, basic logic would tell you that he simply got caught up in the hoopla that comes with trying to fit in among an excited Cleveland sports fan base.

So Randall might not lose his shirt on the jerseys, but if the Cavs win, his new four-year contract with the Browns worth $7.9 million won't be almost enough to cover it. Golden State is 12-point favorites heading into Game 1 on Thursday night, which is tied for the largest point spread in an NBA Finals game since 2001, when the Los Angeles Lakers were a 12-point favorite over Allen Iverson's Philadelphia Sixers. Let's see if Randall's wallet takes a hit or not.
