Bryan Colangelo denies blasting Embiid, others via Twitter; 76ers respond

Joel Embiid Has the Time of His Life Reacting to Bryan Colangelo Story But Doesn't Believe It

On Tuesday night, the sports website The Ringer published a bombshell report accusing Bryan Colangelo, the Philadelphia 76ers' general manager and president of basketball operations, of routinely criticizing players and former Sixers GM (and "Process" folk hero) Sam Hinkie on social media. "We will report the results of that investigation as soon as it is concluded", a statement from the team on Wednesday read. He said in a statement he used one of the accounts to monitor the National Basketball Association industry and other current events, but he was "not familiar with any of the other accounts" brought to his attention and he didn't know who was "behind them or what their motives may be in using them".

Colangelo confirmed that one of the Twitter accounts was his - using the handle @phila1234567 - but denied he had anything to do with the other four in question.

He added, "This storyline is disturbing to me on many levels".

A report on The Ringer news site said Colangelo had secretly operated five Twitter accounts under bogus identities and had used them to take potshots at Sixers players and coaching staff.

Embiid appeared to brush off the story in a response on Twitter.

"Someone's out to get me", Conangelo told Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz.

Roseanne returns to Twitter after ABC cancels her show over racist meltdown
Meanwhile, comic Wanda Sykes , who is a consulting producer on " Roseanne ", tweeted that she would not be returning to the show. The Laff comedy channel is removing all " Roseanne " episodes from its schedule following Roseanne Barr's racist tweet.

It may seem like forever ago, but back in September, Kevin Durant was found out to be using a Twitter burner account to address people who criticized him. Gotta believe him until proven otherwise. "That would be just insane". Colangelo was the general manager of the Toronto Raptors from 2006 until 2013.

Colangelo was hired as president of basketball operations for Philadelphia in April 2016.

"BC has done nothing but clean up hinkie's mess, " the account user wrote in January 2017, referring to Colangelo.

The story comes at the worst time for the Sixers.

Now, just three weeks before the draft and exactly one month before free agency, the organization is investigating possible improprieties by the man in charge of its roster. The Sixers are expected to try to sign a high-level player, most notably LeBron James.
