ESPN's 'Around The Horn' Fooled By Fake Tweet

The debate show got fooled by a fake Adrian Wojnarowski tweet.

One of ESPN's premier shows got fooled by a fake tweet today.

ESPN's Around The Horn had a topic about a tweet from a fake Adrian Wojnarowski tweet.

The tweet said that LeBron James was going to opt out of his Cavs' contract following the 2017-18 season and head to Los Angeles. Wojnarowski had said on a podcast that people around the league thought something like that could happen, but he never reported James was going to do it.

Here's a screenshot of the tweet on air, from Awful Announcing.
