The Jason McIntyre Show: Adrian Wojnarowski on the NBA and the Media

Adrian WojnarowskiWhen you think about dominant sports reporters today, there are a few prominent names in NFL and MLB, but one stands above all in the NBA: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Wojnarowski, along with a couple other writers, has been at the forefront of the modern sports column: Less navel-gazing pontificating – I think this, I think that – and more reporting/informed opinion. I worked with Wojnarowski a little over a decade ago at the Bergen Record, back when he was a general sports columnist, and twitter/sports blogs barely existed.

Among our topics:

* How does he approach his job when he’s competing against an army at ESPN?
* What was it like when ESPN attempted to recruit him from Yahoo?
* “The guts of great writing is great reporting.”
* Around the 28 minute mark, we shift the topic to the NBA. Does LeBron stay in Miami? “Likely.”
* What’s up with Oklahoma City? The Harden trade, so far, looks like a disaster. [OKC fans may want to avoid.]
* Read between the lines on Russell Westbrook and the New York fashion industry stuff.
* Best player in the league nobody’s talking about? Harrison Barnes of Golden State.
* Carmelo Anthony staying in NY.
* 76ers, worst team in NBA history?
