Even when Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski gives credit where it's due, he can't please everyone.

On Tuesday morning, ESPN's Chris Broussard reported that LeBron James opted out of his contract with the Miami Heat as expected. Wojnarowski confirmed the reports shortly thereafter:

However, ESPN NBA Insider writer Amin Elhassan replied to Wojnarowski's tweet with an apparent jab:

The "cable television network" remark appears to be in reference to when Wojnarowski noted in an article last year that the Memphis Grizzlies' vice president of basketball operations John Hollinger once worked for a "cable sports company," or ESPN.

Wojnarowski responded to Elhassan with one simple tweet:

Regardless of Elhassan's intentions, Wojnarowski didn't take kindly to being called out.
