Longtime sports media personality Dan Le Batard recently shared his thoughts on the possibility of the Miami Heat landing a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers for star point guard Damian Lillard.
But at one point, Le Batard turned his attention to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Le Batard seemed to make an exception with the way NBA insiders have been covering the Lillard situation.
«As if it’s shameful for Woj to tell people they could spend weeks or months with Lillard,» Le Batard said, referring to the Wojnarowski reports.
«And this is the Heat’s position, there are no back and forth calls. The offer is [Tyler] Herro and Herro is the best you’ll ever get from anyone. he is better than [Tyrese] Maxey. He’s the best you’re going to get. you are locked up Lillard wants to be with us. This is the deal,» he said on «The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz.»

Le Batard then posted clips criticizing Wojnarowski on Twitter. ESPN contributor Domonique Foxworth then appeared to share the clips on his social media profile by retweeting the post.

He later deleted the retweet. Wojnarowski has not publicly addressed the allegations that Le Batard made against him.
Wojnarowski left Yahoo Sports and joined ESPN as a senior member of the NBA in 2017.
Foxworth played for three NFL teams over the course of his six-year career. The former defensive back last played for the Ravens in 2011.
He is now a contributor to ESPN and appears on a variety of television shows on the network. He also hosts «The Domonique Foxworth Show» podcast.
A seven-time All-Star, Lillard has spent his entire 11-year NBA career with the Portland Trail Blazers. He is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer.
The 33-year-old reportedly requested a trade earlier this month.
Wojnarowski previously reported that Lillard’s agent, Aaron Goodwin, is only considering trade offers from his client’s preferred destination, the Miami Heat.
Wojnarowski also recently stated that the Lillard trade «could take months, could take weeks» due to Portland’s desire to get maximum value for the star guard.
