Miami Fox Affiliate Breathlessly Reports Heat Signing Of Ray Allen They Learned From A Fake Twitter Account

Ray Allen is indeed in Miami talking over a possible deal to sign with the Heat, but the contract's far from signed. Don't tell Miami's Fox affiliate WSVN that, though, as they interrupted tonight's newscast to deliver the breaking news that Allen had signed a three-year, $11 million contract.


They credited Yahoo! Sports with the news, which is funny because Yahoo! Sports didn't report anything of the sort. A fake Adrian Wojnarowski Twitter account did, though, and WSVN ran with it. Don't say faux Twitter accounts never accomplished anything. [WSVN]
