Nope. Just good old fashioned Haterade...
Levien is making these deals based largely on the recommendations of John Hollinger, a statistician who worked for a cable sports company. The San Antonio Spurs once used him as a consultant and regretfully took his advice to sign a free agent named Jackie Butler. It was such a disaster, the Spurs had to attach Luis Scola to a trade to get Butler out of town.
As if a basketball 'expert' who happens to be a sports 'journalist' for an internet website is better than a statistician who worked for a cable sports company who's the worldwide leader in sports. Pot calling kettle black.
Woj does good work though...
Wiki wrote:Wojnarowski has been criticized for his use of anonymous sources in articles concerning NBA player Lebron James. Other writers have noted an apparent bias towards James in Wojnarowski's reporting. For his loss of objectivity in covering Lebron James, Adrian Wojnarowski was listed #1 in Sports Media Watch's Worst of Sports Media 2010.
You gotta be really good to beat Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless to be #1.
