Chris Broussard Denies Tweeting Insane Kyrie Irving Trade, Then Quickly Deletes Tweet (PIC)
For a few hours on Wednesday, the NBA World lost its mind after Fox Sports’ Chris Broussard tweeted out a rumor, then suddenly deleted it. The tweet claimed that Cleveland Cavs disgruntled star Kyrie Irving had been traded to the Miami Heat in return for Goran Dragic, Justise Winslow, and Bam Adebayo.

It was a shocking deal that had people scrambling for more news, but no one had picked up on it yet.
Two hours later, Broussard himself took to Twitter and replied to the tweet. He called it a fake, claiming he’s been on vacation and hadn’t tweeted anything at all that day.
Someone’s playing games with y’all. I’m still on vacation. Haven’t tweeted anything about Kyrie. Not a word. https://t.co/Lku07VYA9f
