Amin Elhassan claims Adrian Wojnarowski has stepped on many black people’s careers and that he has not rapport with LeBron James.
ESPN reporters seem to have found themselves in between a rock and a hard place as of late. Rachel Nichols has received a ton of flack these past few days for claiming Maria Taylor was chosen to be the sideline reporter for ‘diversity purposes’ and nothing more. Now, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN has also found himself in some hot water.
Several allegations revolving around Adrian Wojnarowski and his treatment of journalists of color have been put out there by former ESPN analyst, Amin Elhassan. Amin Elhassan is currently working on the Dan Le Batard Show and this type of a set feels fitting for Elhassan as he’s always been more of a risqué analyst.
Appearing on shows such as Flagrant 2 is a great indication that perhaps ESPN isn’t the right way to go in terms of airing out your thoughts. In a recent edition of the Dan Le Batard Show, Elhassan let everybody know what he thought about Adrian Wojnarowski.
Amin Elhassan says Adrian Wojnarowski does not have a good rapport with LeBron James and Damian Lillard.
While talking about Malika Andrews and the fact that she replaced Rachel Nichols as the sideline reporter for the 2021 NBA Finals, Amin Elhassan brought to light Adrian Wojnarowski and him calling Nichols, “a bad teammate”. This led to Amin going off on the man behind all ‘Woj Bombs’ for several reasons.

“He can’t talk to LeBron. He can’t talk to Chris Paul or Damian Lillard. … He doesn’t have that rapport with them. So what he does is he steps on them.”https://t.co/4kajNELem9

“This guy is going to call someone a bad teammate? For real? Do we want to talk about the black careers that he put a foot on because he was threatened by them? Do we want to talk about the news breakers, with an ‘s’, of diverse backgrounds who have rapports with players that Adrian Wojnarowski doesn’t have that he saw as threatening?”
“He can’t talk to LeBron James. He can’t talk to Damian Lillard or Chris Paul. He doesn’t have that rapport with them. So, what he does is he steps on them. And beyond that particular angle, he steps on a lot of people over there.”
