Tony Reali falls for fake Woj tweet.
ESPN's "Around The Horn" fell victim to a fake tweet yesterday, one that read "LeBron will opt out of contract in 2018 to form a super team and "defend himself" in LA, league sources tell @TheVertical."
"Let's talk this headline I read,"Tony Reali said. "It's from Wojnarowski, so of course it's legitimate."
The LeBron to LA in 2018 tweet, which came from a fake Adrian Wojnarowski account, was debated by the four-person panel of Tim Cowlishaw, Kevin Blackistone, Ramona Shelburne, and Frank Isola. They all took the information as fact, and debated LeBron's future and whether or not he would leave Cleveland.
There have been rumors that LeBron could opt out of his deal after next season to pursue opportunities with the Lakers or Clippers, though nothing is definitive as the tweet alluded to.
Around The Horn host Tony Reali took full blame for being duped by the fake Woj account. Happens to the best of us.
