C.J. McCollum refuses to take photo with Steelers fan at Browns game
All things considered, Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum is a good-natured dude, but there are two surefire ways to annoy him. That’s by downplaying his team’s chances of winning an NBA title while guesting on his podcast show as well as by showing an allegiance to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the rivals of the Cleveland Browns in the NFC North. An unfortunate fan committed the latter crime, which led to a missed opportunity to have a selfie taken with the Blazers star.

McCollum hasn’t been shy about his faith in the Browns despite the football team’s best efforts over the past several years to exhaust its fanbase’s patience.
Last Sunday, C.J. McCollum probably had mixed emotions over the way the Browns’ season opener ended. With Cleveland trailing the Pittsburgh Steelers by as many as 14 points in the fourth quarter, the Browns engineered a comeback to force overtime. However, neither team scored in OT, thus the game being called a draw. Although the Browns didn’t get a win, they also snapped their 17-game losing skid, which was probably enough to make some Cleveland fans go to sleep happy before another work week commences.
The 0-0-1 Browns will look to get its first win since 2016 next Sunday against the also winless New Orleans Saints on the road, so any Drew Brees fans who want to take a photo with Mr. McCollum, you should know by now what the dress code is.
