An online post about PBA Ginebra King's point guard LA Tenorio to join NBA became so trending recently in social media.
Posted at The Philippine Pride, the article said that the Houston Rockets long time scout “Frank Evola”confirms that the Rockets organization has finalized a deal with PBA’s streaky point guard Lewis Alfred “LA” Tenorio, for a 2-year non-guaranteed contract to replace the newly departed fellow Asian Jeremy Lin after the latter decided to join the Lakers earlier this year.

The article even lauded the PBA player as the first ever pure Filipino to play in NBA and also mentioned that Tenorio attracts Evola’s attention during the 2014 Fiba World Cup.
Fans are extremely excited while posting the news on twitter but the result is hoax.
When LA was asked by former PBB housemate Rico Robles on Twitter the PBA player replied briefly as quoted:
