If you've been on the internet lately, you might have noticed that every other story is about where LeBron James might go in free agency. James stories have topped cat pictures as the No. 1 thing on the internet this month.

James is likely going to end up in Cleveland or Miami, so Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins decided to toy with Northern Ohio's emotions on Thursday.

It all started when there was a report that LeBron might make his decision at 3:30 p.m. ET.

After that report surfaced, Hawkins sent out this tweet.

Then Hawkins sent out a bomb saying that LeBron had signed with the Cavaliers.

The article that Hawkins links to is from 2006, but that didn't keep people from believing it. Once people figured out that it was a fake article, they were not amused.

Even Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer weighed in -- and he seems to think the entire incident was at least slightly funny.

However, Hawkins found the entire incident highly amusing and that's all that matters, right?

Anyway, if Hawkins' Browns jerseys don't sell well in Cleveland, now you know why.
