LeBron James had already announced in an essay on SI.com that he was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers when Broussard was on ESPN and asked to confirm the decision. Yes, Broussard seriously confirmed an announcement LeBron had already made.
Broussard did so by looking at his cell phone and saying “he’s going back to Cleveland.”
Not to be overlooked here is Jay Crawford asking Broussard to confirm the announcement. Thanks Jay. Like we needed this confirmed. Seriously, what a dumb thing to ask of Broussard.
At least the good news is Broussard finally revealed his source:
