The Knicks are bad right now. Real bad. So bad that, about two hours ago, Twitter user #BullsNation "retweeted" a tweet sent out by Yahoo! Sports writer Adrian Wojnarowski. That tweet indicated that the Knicks had just agreed to a deal with…Well, just take a look for yourself:
RT "@WojYahooNBA: The Knicks have signed Romeo Miller (Lil' Romeo) to a 10-Day contract after tenure with Erie BayHawks, sources tell Y!""— #BullsNation (@H00PINATI) December 9, 2013
That's right…Romeo "Lil' Romeo" Miller to the Knicks! Let us repeat that: LIL' ROMEO TO THE KNICKS!
However, about two seconds worth of investigative work reveals that Wojnarowski did not send out a tweet about Lil' Romeo. In fact, he hasn't even mentioned the Knicks within the last 24 hours. But that didn't stop a bunch of NBA fans from retweeting #BullsNation's fake RT and tweeting about the Romeo-to-the-Knicks news as if it was real:
