Chris Broussard Confirmed LeBron James' Own Announcement

By Josh Gold-Smith, Awful Announcing

LeBron James announced his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a Sports Illustrated piece as told to Lee Jenkins that went live on Friday.

Just in case you don’t believe LeBron’s own words, ESPN’s Chris Broussard is here to confirm them. Or should we say confirm them.

But he wasn’t done there. After consulting his trusty cell phone live on SportsCenter, he revealed that the announcement was not false.

Now that Broussard has authenticated the piece written by James himself, we can all rest easy. We’re shocked that he didn’t cite his sources this time.
