The only thing better at this point would be if his wife immediately filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences based on the fact that he threw her under the bus and publicly shamed/slandered her for something she vigorously denied doing.

So his stance is that the voided Jahlil Okafor trade and all the posts the account made that were consistent with the FO's perspective were...random guesswork? Not sensitive club-related information?

Built for this: Jerry Colangelo’s influence on GCU
November 02, 2017 / by rick.vacek / 0 Comment

By Rick Vacek
GCU Magazine

He thought he would become a teacher and a coach, but something inside told him to take some business classes in college. Three years later, Jerry Colangelo was starting a career in the business of professional sports.

Let’s see now … how did that work out?

quote:

University officials were so buoyed by his impact, they built the Jerry Colangelo Museum, standing sentry at the main entrance to campus, waving in more people to be educated by his ideals and achievements when it opened in September.

Surrounded by friends and GCU basketball players at the gala in his honor, Colangelo holds his framed copy of a full-page advertisement in The Arizona Republic that the University placed to thank him for all that he has done.

Dr. Randy Gibb, the CCOB dean, had grown accustomed to the rather amazing experience of having such a famous man suddenly sitting in his office, his arrival unannounced. But now Gibb got to work with Colangelo — or Mr. Colangelo, as he and other faculty members always refer to him — for a year and a half as they picked out artifacts for the museum.

“You know what’s neat?” Gibb said. “With him and now the museum with his name and the fact that he’s on campus all the time, it gives us this role model, this true servant leader, somebody to really look up to, to be proud of, and I think business students on this campus are proud to be in the Colangelo College of Business.”

Josh Harris just got asked about it at the press conference and said "That's not today's issue. He has a contract through the rest of the year but that's not today's issue."

Jerry Colangelo has strong ties to agents through USA basketball. That was a good reason he got involved in the first place, the concern wasn't that the 76ers were losing games, but that agents were getting pissed off their players were getting traded so frequently. If Colangelo wanted to he could call in favors or "you scratch mine I'll scratch yours" with some agents to steer players away from FA meetings or things like draft workouts.

I'm not sure how realistic those threats are though.

I think the best case scenario now is that Hinkie comes back, gets a hero's welcome and then somehow destroys the 76ers just as they were getting real good

you literally think a person saying their NBA team of choice being better than the fucking 76ers is a 'schtick'

Because I know nothing about this stuff: is the only reason they could have asked for the phone because of the possible HIPPA violations due to the tweets about Okafor and Noel? Because if so that adds an entirely new level of hilarity to this.

I choose to believe that Hinkie was working this case from exile to bring honor back to his name and retake his rightful position

also in a hilarious stroke of coincidence, this debacle was basically the plot of 2K's myGM story this year
