California Senator Barbara Boxer Loses NBA Finals Bet, Wears LeBron James Jersey

A sight most Golden State fans don’t want to see – a Californian wearing Cleveland Cavaliers gear.

“Wine and gold looks great on you,” Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown tweeted Wednesday, regarding Barbara Boxer wearing a Lebron James Cavaliers jersey as part of an NBA Finals bet too hard to pass up on.

Both senators, who represent the states of the Warriors and Cavaliers, made a wager before the NBA Final Games.

This isn’t the first time they wagered on their teams – last year, it was Boxer who had the big win.

Boxer posted an old tweet from their last bet on Twitter where Brown is photographed wearing a Warriors jersey and had said “I enjoyed all the trash talking… until today.” The Warriors took home the win last year in the NBA Final Championship.

She coaxed him further by saying, “Hey @SenSherrodBrown...double or nothing? #DubNation #Back2Back”

Brown accepted the bet, using the Cleveland hashtag #ALLin216.

If Brown lost, he would have to wear Curry’s shirt and serve Boxer a taste of Platform Beer Brewery.

If Boxer lost, she would have to wear James’ shirt and serve Brown a taste of San Francisco’s 21st Amendment Brewery.

A playful bet ensued through social media with each team’s advancement in the championship .

After the Warriors lost to the Cavaliers in Game 7, it was Boxer who had to fly the white flag.
