It’s a sign of these crazy times that the biggest Woj Bomb of the month centers around Woj himself.
Adrian Wojnarowski, the most prominent NBA reporter in the business, has been suspended by ESPN for sending a two-word email to Missouri Senator Josh Hawley which read “f*ck you”.
Wojnarowski’s email was in response to Hawley’s statement which slammed the NBA for allowing social justice messages to be displayed on jerseys but not messages that support law enforcement or are critical of China’s Communist Party.
Wojnarowski has since been suspended for one to two weeks, according to The Washington Post.
NBA players, meanwhile, have come out in support of Woj, who they say was only speaking his mind.
Here are those messages of support:
