Originally posted by KawshenI'm not sure how many heard but someone put up a hoax page yesterday mimicking the Miami Herald saying Shaq was out for the season.
ESPN, MSNBC, Foxsports and a whole lot of other news outlets bought it and reported on it before they figured out it was a fraud.
Yes, and not only did it almost give me cardiac arrest, but I was about THAT close to posting the storylink here before it disappeared/was retracted.
EDIT: So I don't have to start another thread over this, there's a story in the Sentinel this morning that Charlotte traded Steve Smith and his giant salad fork to Miami for Malik Allen. If he has just a little game left in the tank, it's a good move that didn't really cost them anything.

Selfish reaction - I really, really hope for a lockout. Especially if it's a foregone conclusion and no underclassmen declare for this year's draft. Not only will it help "my" team, but it will make next year's NCAA quality that much higher.
