Last night NBA Twitter exploded when it was reported that Chris Paul had demanded a trade from the Houston Rockets because he couldn’t stand playing next to James Harden.

The delicate relationship between Houston Rockets stars James Harden and Chris Paul has been termed “unsalvageable” and the star players want a divorce, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
“There’s no respect at all, on either side,” a source told Yahoo Sports. “They need to get away from one another. Chris doesn’t respect James’ standing in the league, and James doesn’t respect the work Chris has put in to this point.”
Chris Paul has gone on to deny the report via Instagram and through the media.
Despite Paul’s denials, the Rockets situation was the subject of plenty of conversations during the early morning sports programming like First Take and Undisputed
Unfortunately for Skip Bayless he fell for a bogus report from notorious Twitter troll SportsTalkAboutBarry about Chris Paul making James Harden cry after he made fun of Harden’s “manboobs”
Here is the Tweet that Bayless used as his source.
Skip wasn’t the only one to fall for the fake report, several reported on Twitter also got duped by SportsTalkBarry.
Skip might have to retire from TV after that embarrassing mistake.
