So The Ringer put out this article last night asserting that Bryan Colangelo has been secretly tweeting demeaning stuff about the Sixers, and all hell is breaking loose in our favorite league, the National Basketball Association.

Our favorite player, Joel Hans Embiid, took to Twitter:

https://twitter.com/JoelEmbiid/status/1001655821913284610

https://twitter.com/JoelEmbiid/status/1001659466478219264

https://twitter.com/JoelEmbiid/status/1001670822526844928

https://twitter.com/JoelEmbiid/status/1001677048744742912

https://twitter.com/JoelEmbiid/status/1001694241507217409

For now Joel is playing it safe, but there are strong indications that it's one of Bryan or Jerry, if not both! It was dug up that the phone number used for 3/5 of the fake accounts ends in -91:

https://twitter.com/OhWowHmm/status/1001672894668255233

(Another of the accounts that ends in -75 and never tweeted was confirmed to be Bryan Colangelo's)

Meanwhile, Brett Brown has been extended for three more years, and Benjamin Simmons is reportedly dating Kendall Jenner. What will happen next? Find out in the next episode of The NBA!

I hope Jerry is trying to let his own son take the fall on his tweets. That would be the cherry here.

I doubt it would, or else if it did affect stuff they'd just fire BC regardless.

Apparently this guy helped raise Fultz, screwed up his shot against the team's wishes and Fultz basically had to cut him out of his life. It's basically the only story that fits with everything that was seen and explains why no one was willing to divulge any information or even a cover story. And it was broken by a Colangelo burner twitter used to defend collar size.

Colangelo is just following a Philadelphia tradition of a GM taking their previous regime's core and wrecking it. But I have to say this is head and shoulders above anything Ruben Amaro did.
