Skip to comments.LeBron James, NBA players rally around ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski after reported suspension
Posted on 07/13/2020 5:20:47 AM PDT by C19fan
ESPNs Adrian Wojnarowski has reportedly been suspended without pay by ESPN for saying f--- you to Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley in an email. Hawley had sent a letter to NBA commissioner Adam Silver, complaining about the social justice messages NBA players are allowed to wear on the back of their jerseys, and Woj was responding to a press release Hawleys office had sent to him. Woj apologized publicly and to his ESPN colleagues, but it doesnt appear thats had an effect on his suspension (which ESPN has yet to confirm or comment on). So NBA players have taken up the cause. After the news of Wojs suspension broke on Saturday night, NBA players (both in the bubble and beyond) started tweeting the #FreeWoj hashtag on Twitter to support the veteran NBA reporter.

Buy more ammo.
LeeBrown Jimmy is a racist POS.
The comments and questions from Sen Hawley put the money the NBA receives from China at risk. You mess with people’money and you have to expect push back. I would like to see other senators join Hawley in asking even more pointed questions.
As if I needed another reason to never watch the NBA again....
Hawley, sent a letter to the NBA Commissioner asking why they were allowing political statements on jerseys that only questioned American institutions....and was China specifically off limits or could someone wear a jersey that said, “Free Hong Kong”...to which the ESPN reporter replied “F” you.....
Cancel the NBA.
LeBron = spoiled privileged brat. Don’t think his Lakkker Demokrat superteam could win a playoff game against Jordan’s Bulls.
NBA are scum thugs and traitors.
This guy should be thankful for the slavery endured by his ancestors. Those generations bred to be big, fast, strong and dumb as a bag of Chinese hammers sure paid off bigly for him.
Note to self: Deciding to completely ignore NBA games and to refuse to buy a single bit of their merchandise was a good idea.
That got Jimmy the Greek fired. If you think about it, slavery proved what the Nazis were trying to do.
AND... He did it from his ESPN.com email account.
In other words, it is an official FU from ESPN to a Republican.
LeBrown can GFHS.
Curb your Jimmie - or at least clean up with a plastic bag afterwards...
It’s called “killing the golden goose.” These NBA(sports in general) feel the money train will always be there, but it is quickly drying up. The stands will be empty and the owners will not pay the salaries.
Congrats NBA and you too NFL. Telling your mostly WHITE advertisers and fanbases to basically go f**k themselves is real smart business. Hello dwindling advertising dollars and decreasing attendance and interest. Let’s hope so.
Lebrainless is why I’ll never watch another nba game ever.
Keep going people, you are working wonders at reducing your fan base. Soon you will have to move across the Pacific and rename your teams. Beijing Bastards? Shanghai Sellouts?
Just an added reason to tune out the NBA and all the criminals that make it up. Bunch of rich spoiled black crybabies.
Who is LeBron James. Was he elected to be our spokes person?
