    Anyone else think some GMs refuse to give scoops to ESPN, which is why Woj got so big at Yahoo, and why Shams is getting more scoops now?

    This. I don't think it's Shams getting amazing scoops. I think it's Woj being at ESPN. This whole time we thought it was Woj being the master of scoops but it probably had a lot to do with him being at Yahoo and not ESPN. Now Shams gets to do the same.

    Might well just be a matter of their contract not yet run out.

    Whatever the reason, & that could be it, BSPN has instantly ruined another good sports reporter! :mad:

    I'm thinking that too but still holding out hope Shams doesn't join the dark side. ;)

    would be the other way around, Woj reported far more signings than Sham

    If one doesn't think Shams will end up at ESPN then you haven't been paying attention. It is just whenever his Vertical contract runs out.
    Mannix and Lee could also follow.

    What is Woj doing about being beaten to the punch every time now?

    Counting his fat stacks of money.

    Looks like he was a fraud like so many NBA scrubs that got max contracts but didn't deserve it.
