A fake Stephen A. Smith twitter account spread the false rumor that Kevin Garnett was retiring from the NBA Tuesday, and even caused NBA players to tweet about it:

Last night, a fake Stephen A Smith Twitter account (@stephenasmift, not @stephenasmith) posted that Kevin Garnett would be announcing his retirement today at 1 PM on ESPN:

The tweet was believed by many, and even had NBA players like James Harden and Jarret Jack talking about it.
 
I hope most Celtics fans checked their sources before believing this, but if not, Kevin Garnett will NOT be announcing his retirement today and even Doc Rivers is optimistic that Kevin will play a couple more years.

 

Another rumor of Rajon Rondo being traded to the Kings, for Tyreke Evans, was spread by a fake Chris Broussard account Tuesday. With all the moves that are currently being made in the NBA, this is by far the best time for all the fake ESPN twitter accounts to have their several hours of glory. They have been caught now, for the most part. Everyone needs to carefully look at who is saying what.
