When keeping it prepared goes wrong.
While everyone this morning in the basketball world reloaded their Twitter timeline awaiting Kevin Durant's decision on the Player's Tribune, Celtics fans for a brief moment believe they had landed their whale.
Tweets began to surfaces of a yahoo.com story which included a CBS Sports video indicating Durant had made his decision and he was on his way to Boston on a max deal.
Fans and local media lost their minds for a moment, refreshing their timeline hoping for the likes of The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski and ESPN's Mark Stein to confirm the story. Unfortunately, the video was pre-recorded as it was believed that Yahoo made several video packages in anticipation of the KD announcement. The video was accidentally released.
Yes, there's a video indicating Durant signed with the Celtics. Guessing Yahoo just made a video for all teams and accidentally released one— Jay King (@ByJayKing) July 4, 2016

Moments later, Kevin Durant announced he'd be joining the Golden State Warriors.
And by the way, the link now redirects to the Yahoo home page.
