Adrian Wojnarowski, the most dominant force in NBA reporting, brings you inside the league with The Woj Pod. Woj is probing the biggest newsmakers in the sport – from the commissioner, to general managers, coaches and star players – to bring listeners inside the processes, personas and stories that impact the NBA. Beyond longer sit-down interviews in our New York studios, Woj will deliver real-time podcasts with league personnel built around breaking news.
Former Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro sits down with Adrian Wojnarowski in studio on the Vertical Podcast. Del Negro and Woj cover fertile territory, including Del Negro’s contentious relationship with Bulls management that included a physical confrontation in the coach’s office with Chicago executive John Paxson, coaching Derrick Rose and Chris Paul into the playoffs and the complexities of dealing with former Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Del Negro discusses his childhood growing up in the bar owned by his father, a legendary New England player whose career was cut short after leaving the legendary Adolph Rupp and the University of Kentucky.
