Some reports hit while others just miss terribly.
Like, say, the Marcus Smart story from Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix.
Then what happened?
Now we get it, Mannix only was reporting what he was told, and his sources were familiar with Stevens, not the Celtics and not Smart. And maybe Boston did look for a trade suitor for the guard behind the scenes.
Still, the internet never forgets, especially when something is as wrong as this, and especially when it comes to someone as beloved as Smart.
Smart himself even chose violence and retweeted the story to his Twitter account shortly after news of his extension was reported. Naturally, that set Celtics Twitter off as they also retweeted the original tweet being sure to let Mannix know that what he reported didn’t happen.
We have a feeling Mannix’s Twitter mentions will be nonstop for a bit.
