A fake Twitter account is trolling the BBN today, so don’t fall for it

I’ve had a lot of you guys ask me about this on the site and Twitter, so I just thought I’d come out and make it clear that the notification Bleacher Report put out about Wenyen Gabriel declaring for the draft and signing with an agent is FALSE. Bleacher Report got tricked by a fake Jeff Goodman account that’s been trolling fans of several teams all day with reports about kids leaving, specifically Wenyen and Sacha. UK hasn’t sent out any news regarding Wenyen or Sacha today, so those reports are NOT TRUE.

How do you know if a report on Twitter is fake? In cases like this, pay attention to subtle misspellings in the Twitter handle, like the extra “o” in Goodman:

This time of year, always be on alert. Also, is there anyone more pathetic than the person who makes an account claiming to be Jeff Goodman?

    Bleacher Report is the worst. Stopped giving them clicks years ago. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jeff Gooodman knows more than the actual guy about college basketball.

    I was wrong. There is something out there as bad as the real Jeff Goodman.

    I am shocked the Bleacher Report didn’t see in the fake Twitter account’s info that says “Parody Account.”

    Or how about that it actually says “Parody Account” on the profile?
