I sentence both Colangelos to death by chaos dunk. Jerry must watch his son turn to dust in his arms.

The cba restricts divulging serious medical info without the players consent . Maybe your link says that I didnít click it.

CBA, sure. I imagine the 76ers have code of conduct that was violated too, but it's not a legal violation. If a team Doctor tweets out "Lol, Embiid's leg fell off" that could have legal consequences. It seems unlikely Colangelo/his wife would be in that same boat.

When I was 17, my father was so stupid, I didn't want to be seen with him in public. When I was 24, I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in just 7 years.

Imagine believing D'Antoni outcoached Pop.

Jerry Colangelo is going to retreat back to Grand Canyon University and soothe his hurt feelings by opening another museum dedicated to himself

Eventually Dan is going to get a better job, he's fairly decent. BC being hoisted on GCU as his replacement seems realistic.

It's amazing to think that the Sam Hinkie letter that he wrote after getting fired ends up being the the second-most hilarious thing relating to the 76ers front office in the last 3-4 years.

Also even though I have no rooting interest in the 76ers whatsoever good riddance you pathetic Nepotism hire.

the "NBA deep state" that forced Hinkie out of Philadelphia and embedded a man from their own inner sanctum in the team's leadership will be furious. All their efforts and threats unable to overcome the damage of the burner tweets, forcing a tactical retreat from the city. They will lurk in the shadows and wait for the next moment to strike, bbut where?

Yes she was at least his influence

"That's the influence of having a Northern Italian wife." Colangelo has all his shirts custom made at Manifatture all' Orologio, a little shop in the main piazza in Bologna, Italy. "That's where the high collars come from," he says.
https://www.thestar.com/life/2007/06/07/bryan_colangelo.html

I like to imagine that yes, it was Jerry, and that's why it was the one account that didn't shut down. He's that untouchable. I also like to imagine the firm doing the investigation trying to get a look at his phone but being denied clearance. Actually I've decided that's definitely what happened.

yeah I agree he'll move on after the contract ends. I just like the idea of him being involved w/ the burners but being "off-limits" for the investigators while nonchalantly leaving the Vic Jr. account public and issuing threats and attempting power plays to protect his son. drat what a badass.
