'TMZ': LeBron Misquoted

TMZ spotted LeBron James coming out of a club after celebrating his girlfriend's birthday. TMZ asks LBJ if he thinks there will be a basketball season. LBJ's response isn't clear, at first it sounds like he says "Nope". TMZ reports that LBJ says "Nope" to the question. Someone on LBJ's staff of handlers calls TMZ to tell them they misquoted LBJ. At second listen, it seems LBJ answered, "We hope", not "Nope". That's a big mistake for TMZ, they had a good time with the faux pas.
