View Full Version : My Theory: Adrian Wojnarowski is a Phony NBA Media Source

The guy has lost a lot of credibility in the last few months with this Dwight Howard thing.

I remember during the NBA draft, he would tweet each draft selection 10 seconds before Stern would go up to the podium to make the announcement.


I remember when TNT was hyping up with the pre-game show of the All-Star reserves, and Woj spoiled it for all of those guys by revealing the reserves 45 minutes earlier.



I really feel the guy has a reputation of maybe two or three correct trade scenarios (mostly from this past season's trade deadline), but he's mostly full of BS and a attention whore and a guy who wants to get the news up first before anyone else.



We were giving this guy too much credit, but I feel he's just another attention whore and isn't anything special.


What is your guys' take?

I've never liked him, personally. Most of his articles I read I completely disagree with. It always seems like he's writing to get attention.

Not a fan.

What exactly has caused him to lose credibility in the Dwight thing?

He's much much better than those ESPN "reporters"

You don't need to put 'imo' at the end of your sentence, ok. :up:

Woj is more credible than anyone else. You can stick with Brousarrd and Bucher.

So you're upset that he learns things before everyone else and then tweets this info for the public to see? Something doesn't make sense...Woj is a beast

I lost a decent amount of respect for him after he criticized MJ's acceptance speech for the HOF... I never read his stuff anyways so doesn't make a big difference to me

Woj is one of the best sources but he is overrated.

He is legit. The rumors are true as teams are talking, nothing imminent at this time.

He's pretty credible unlike a lot of garbage people in the business

He is the best source easily. People need to stop *****ing and understand these guys can report only what teams want them to know whether it's BS or true but mostly BS. Some guys filter it better than others. These rumors are true but like he SAID the deal is far from done.

Uh, that criticism was well-deserved. Michael came off sounding like an entitled prick during his HOF speech. Only a Bulls/MJ homer would disagree.

You can tell he has sources in Chicago and Boston that are willing to give him inside info as long as he fulfills their agenda of writing negative articles on their competition.

I completely fail to see the point that the OP is trying to make. What made Woj lose credibility? And if the guy is such a terrible NBA journalist, tell me who's better. As a journalist myself, you can't always be sure what source you get is right and who is complete ********. But Woj is as consistent and as credible as any other writer covering today's NBA. If anyone is full of ****, it's the OP for creating this ridiculous thread...
