Adrian Wojnarowski ‘Woj’, is reportedly highly sought after by various gambling companies that are trying to pry him away from ESPN.
NBA fans know that when the offseason rolls around, there’s only one man that deserves to have his social media’s notifications on high alert: Adrian Wojnarowski. Both Woj and Shams Charania of ‘The Athletic’ have almost monopolized the field of ‘breaking NBA news’ as seen by this past 2021 offseason.
A hilarious anecdote that sums up the essence of Adrian Wojnarowski is Doc Rivers recently revealing that he found out through a ‘Woj bomb’ that Ben Simmons was outside of the Philadelphia 76ers facility. This means someone told the ESPN columnist that Simmons had decided to meet with the Sixers in Philly before someone had told the head coach.
This takes a certain level of trust and notoriety. So, it Isn’t surprising to hear that several companies are trying to pry him away from ESPN to help them gain a substantial following as well.
