Over the past couple of days, there have been fake twitter reports of trades and retirements and other such nonsense. There have been fake Chris Broussard and fake Stephen A Smith accounts that have causes havoc among Celtics fans and NBA fans alike. There was this tweet from @Stephan A Smifh
Sad day for the NBA, as the great Kevin Garnett has decided to retire. Press conference scheduled for 1 pm EST tomorrow on ESPN.
It was the latter tweet that caused an absolute frenzy on the internet before the real Chris Broussard (2 s's) called out the fake Chris Brousard (1 s) for his shenanigans.
So, the lesson to be learned from this is that no matter what you hear or read, verify it first before re-tweeting or going into full out panic over it. I have a feeling that this is only going to get worse before the off-season is over.
