Husky basketball fans got their share of Twitter action yesterday when Isaiah Thomas and Matthew Bryan-Amaning took part in a friendly competition to see who would reach 500 followers first. Unfortunately for the loser they would have to go bald upon MBA coming back to the states.
MBA proved to be too much as almost the entire Husky team took part in the Twitter battle, cheering on both sides to come up with creative ideas to entice fans to follow. Thomas offered his game worn jersey that was played in the Purdue tournament game to a random follower should he have won, with MBA offering two game worn pieces of clothing to two random followers should he win.
MBA also took the initiative to create a YouTube video pleading for subscribers.
No matter who won, it was nice to see the great team chemistry from last year carrying over. Teammates who took part in the battle included Thomas, MBA, C.J. Wilcox, Abdul Gaddy, Clarence Trent, and the Twitter veteran Quincy Pondexter.
But after the final result in which MBA won by about a margin of thirty, Thomas will be going bald.
