    Chrissy Teigen "Knew" LeBron James Was Going To The Lakers And I Can't Stop Laughing

    "I feel like starting basketball rumors..."

    Gather 'round! I'm about to tell a little story about Chrissy Teigen, LeBron James, the Los Angeles Lakers, and fake news, that has truly illuminated my otherwise dreary and hot Monday morning.

    Spike TV

    Whether or not you follow basketball, you've probably heard that NBA superstar LeBron James just signed a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Up until the news was announced last night, people were speculating about where the former Cleveland Cavaliers legend would end up.

    BREAKING: LeBron James makes his decision

    Since Chrissy Teigen is known for trolling and being generally hilarious on Twitter, she decided to start some "rumors" before the news came out:

    She "claimed" to see him at an embroidery shop with a Lakers jersey, which is obviously exactly how all NBA players get their jerseys embroidered...

    I’m at a small embroidery shop in downtown LA and lebron is here with a blank Lakers jersey? Trying to get a pic

    ...and even added some very accurate "photographic evidence":

    Ok got him leaving the basketball jersey embroidery shop. This is downtown LA

    And, well, she looked pretty damn *prescient* once the truth was revealed:

    Anyway, all of this led to the this very sincere and not at all joking piece about Chrissy's basketball "scoop":

    I am also crying!!!!

    Spike TV

    People couldn't get enough of it:

    @chrissyteigen Please add "NBA Whisperer" to your bio

    @chrissyteigen No amount of investigative journalism can beat just being at the right embroidery shop at the right time

    They even asked Chrissy for some updates on today's World Cup match:

    @chrissyteigen Please tell me Mexico wins against Brazil today

    It really is like she has ESPN or something!!!!

    Unfortunately, Chrissy didn't actually have insider knowledge of LeBron's decision — but that doesn't mean she isn't welcoming him to LA with open arms:

    @KingJames welcome to LA! Friday is sunset rosé, laser facials on Monday. the rest of the week is running into people you don’t like at soho house
