ESPN got into the fake news business on Tuesday night. With all the buzz surrounding Anthony Davis requesting a trade so he can join LeBron James in Los Angeles a fake Instagram comment made the rounds on social media.

The fake comment caught ESPN’s eye and they actually aired the ridiculous comment on SportsCenter.
😂 Sportscenter aired a fake IG screenshot showing LeBron commenting on an Anthony Davis post.

They should have known it was a fake by how absurd the comment was. LeBron isn’t that open with his tampering.
Not a great look for the Worldwide Leader in Sports. It probably cost a poor intern their job.
