NBA experts, fans can't get enough of rumor-filled off-season

Just before 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, one of professional basketball’s top news breakers, Marc Stein, probably reached for his Blackberry (some NBA folks still swear by ’em) and pressed send on a Tweet that would send NBA fans into a tizzy.

Within 30 minutes, it’d been retweeted more than 4,000 times with another 3,500 likes.
