And this is why you don't rest your hopes on Michael Avenati
LINK

quote:

his claims about Zion Williamson claims appear to have been based in part on a bogus document. Deadspin spoke to a person who had fabricated a fake invoice for $2,125 and texted it to Avenatti. About one hour after the lawyer received the fake invoice, he fired off his tweet to Duke.


quote:

The tipster reached out to Deadspin last Friday afternoon and shared a video that showed them opening a text message conversation they had had with Avenatti one week prior, which featured Avenatti’s cell phone number. (It matched the number I used when I called him for this story a few years ago.) They also provided the fake invoice, writing “Boston Sucks!” on it at Deadspin’s request, to show they had the same handwriting as the notes on the bottom of the invoice provided to Avenatti.


quote:

The person who sent it told Deadspin they were inspired by 4chan’s 2018 duping of Avenatti and that they sent the fake document because “he falls for crap and I don’t like him.” They searched for Williamson’s mother’s name online, created the document in Microsoft Word, and sent a photo of it to Avenatti, not expecting him to tweet about it so quickly or directly.


quote:

Avenatti seemed to figure out the next morning that he was getting played. He texted the hoaxer, “Nice try idiot. Next time try harder and be smarter. And frick off btw.” Avenatti never retracted any of his claims about Williamson or deleted the tweets, though he did lock his Twitter account after he was indicted last week.

You know how there are times in life when you can see how someone is a blatantly shitty human being?

This is one of those times.

I highly encourage everyone to click on the link and look at how amateurish and simple the fabricated documents really are

I think the hoaxer didn’t actually expect it to work.

Zion was absolutely paid by Nike/Duke to attend, but the idea it went to some made up consulting firm with his mom's name made no sense.

On a separate note, Deadspin and Barstool are so cringy.
