Rajon Rondo Trade Hoax Sparks Twitter Frenzy Among Celtics Fans

Rajon Rondo Trade Hoax Sparks Twitter Frenzy Among Celtics FansFor a moment on Tuesday, it appeared that the worst fear had come true for Celtics fans.

Well, for the gullible ones, at least.

A fake account attributed to ESPN's Chris Broussard tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the Celtics had traded Rajon Rondo and the Celtics' two first-round draft picks to the Sacramento Kings for Tyreke Evans and the No. 5 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. The "report" was retweeted more than 1,000 times before most tweeters presumably realized it was a hoax.

Rest assured, Celtics fans. Rondo has not been traded… yet.

Check out several highlights from the confusion below.
