Around the Horn panel duped by fake Woj tweet (VIDEO)

"This is from Wojnarowski, so it's of course legitimate."

Well, that's embarrassing.

For roughly four minutes on Thursday, panelists on ESPN's Around the Horn debated a fake tweet from an account posing to be The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski. The tweet -- from @WojVertioalNBA, who at 16 followers, is clearly to the real Adrian Wojnarowski -- suggested that in 2018, LeBron would opt out of his contract in Cleveland and form a super team in Los Angeles.

When asked about the possibility of James jumping to L.A., Ramona Shelbourne put the odds at 80 percent. While Tim Cowlishaw and Brian Blackistone would give more reserved odds, Frank Isola went one step further to 81 percent. 

To host Tony Reali's credit, he owned up to the mistake immediately upon realization.
