Let me show you how bad rumors get started.
This small nugget gets put in a New York Daily News article.
The Knicks primary target is Rondo, Boston’s All Star point guard who is currently recovering from knee surgery. The Knicks have been trying to trade Shumpert, Raymond Felton and Amar’e Stoudemire in a complicated deal for Rondo but the rebuilding Celtics has yet to show much interest.
That small nugget gets put on Twitter as “Knicks and Celtics discussing trade for Rondo”. When in reality, Knicks inquired, Celtics said no and that’s it.
No trade is happening and never was close to happening. There are certain Twitter accounts, that take joy in fooling you and acting like insiders when they aren’t. Don’t fall for the banana int the tailpipe.
Don’t get Twitter catfished.
