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.

United States to slap restrictions on some Chinese investments
Trump has also threatened to impose tariffs on an additional $100 billion in Chinese goods if Beijing retaliates. That deal was separate from the United States investigation into China's alleged theft of intellectual property.

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.
