Joe Thomas counters Damarious Randall's jersey offer

Jersey promise could leave Browns player in red if Cavs win Joe Thomas counters Damarious Randall's jersey offer

Cleveland Browns defensive back Damarious Randall tweeted that if the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, he'd buy a jersey for anyone who retweeted him.

There have been more than 121,000 retweets as of the writing of this post.

Randall said he didn't expect it to get more than 100 retweets.

Randall tweeted over the weekend that he was happy the Cavaliers beat the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals so that he'd have a chance to attend games against Stephen Curry and the Warriors during the NBA Finals.

"I definitely didn't think it would go as viral as it did".

Randall didn't specify which team's jersey or whose jersey he'll he giving away if the Cavs win, but one can hope Randall has his ways about getting jerseys at wholesale prices. He said he relates to Curry's story of overcoming injuries.

What's interesting is that Randall's tweet was made at night on May 28.

One fan tweeted that there's "zero chance" Randall delivers on his wager, but he was quick to respond, "100% chance". It's a small city with a fan base that wants its athletes to support the hometown team.

"I am not anti-[LeBron James]", Randall said.

He later added, "Even if the Cavs do lose, I actually still plan on doing something for the fans".

Asked whether he has a plan he can put into motion should the Cavs upset the Warriors, Randall said, "I mean I guess we'll have to watch the series and see".

The NBA Finals tip off this Thursday with Game 1 at Golden State, with the Warriors listed as 12-point favourites to earn the victory in the first game of the series.

"I think what Damarious found out is that there are a lot of passionate Cleveland fans here, and you've got to be careful about what you say", Jackson said.
