Browns S Damarious Randall’s tweet could prove costly should Cavs win Finals

Cleveland Browns safety Damarious Randall made a bold — and potentially quite costly — pledge on Twitter over the outcome of the 2018 NBA Finals. In fact, should the underdog Cleveland Cavaliers come out victorious over the Golden State Warriors, Randall could be on the hook for paying out millions of dollars for sports merchandise.

Randall got himself in a pricey pickle by promising to buy a jersey for anyone who retweeted his pledge to do so should the Cavaliers come out on top.

As of Tuesday morning, Randall’s arguably questionable social media dispatch has generated nearly 100,000 retweets. Should Randall make good on his promise should the Cavaliers prevail, the Browns safety would be on the hook for nearly $10 million in jerseys if he were to purchase them on Fanatics.

Randall, despite hailing from Florida and playing pro football in LeBron James’ town, is rooting for the Warriors and did not hold back when expressing how he looks forward to Stephen Curry “light that (expletive) up” in Games 3 and 4 in Cleveland, which he plans to attend.

A look through the comments on Randall’s tweet not surprisingly shows how he drew the vitriolic ire of Cleveland fans, something that may haunt him down the road after taking such an anti-Cavs stance.

As the retweets continued at a dizzying pace, one Twitter user called out Randall, suggesting there’s “zero chance” he delivers if the Cavaliers upend the Warriors. Randall’s retort?

Quite the promise. But first things first, the Cavaliers need to beat the Warriors in the NBA Finals to put Randall in a position of deciding whether he’ll put his money where his mouth is.
