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.
At the time of Rubin's offer on Tuesday, Randall's tweet had been retweeted over 400,000 times. Also, it would take some sort of Marshall Plan-like operation for him to deliver jerseys to whomever is behind the more than 818,000 retweets he's received (a bunch of those got to be bots, right?).
"I definitely didn't think the Cleveland fan base would go this insane about it", Randall said. "I don't think he meant any harm". It's a small city with a fan base that wants its athletes to support the hometown team.
"Don't hit send", Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor said. With jerseys going for roughly $100, that puts the 25-year old defensive back on the hook for over $32 million in gear. The Browns picked up his fifth-year option for 2019, which is worth more than $9 million, earlier this offseason, but the option is guaranteed for injury only. And according to a report from ESPN, Randall would have pulled for the Cavs had the Houston Rockets advanced from the Western Conference. When he's going against Steph, I would rather Steph over LeBron.
"I'm glad the Cavs made it to the finals so I can watch Curry light that [expletive] up Game 3 & 4", he wrote.
I definitely didn't think the Cleveland fan base would go this insane about it.
As for interacting with those fans on Twitter again, Randall said he can't do it now because his phone freezes every time he attempts to open the app.
