    No, he said he spoke with Colangelo and Colangelo denied this, and so Embiid said he would believe him for now.

    If you read the report, it is very obvious it is him (all three linked accounts that they did NOT mention to the Sixers representative but they suspected were all him as well were made private within minutes... this was a smart trap by the ringer staff to ensure that they were all him). In the VERY off chance it was not him on all 5 accounts, he still clearly had direct knowledge of them, or else they would never be instantly made private (and with all of the follows of his family friends + personal/work life on all of those accounts, obviously they were all him).

    Long story short, he's lying. He will be fired by the afternoon tomorrow.

    Yup.

    Jerry West and about 3 other NBA front office legends weren't working at the time that time yet Jerry Colangelo was "who Sixers ownership asked for" according to Adam Silver, and he never interviewed. Never talked with ownership before just being hired. The first conversations were about taking the job. At the time it was well known that Jerry wanted back in the NBA and his time with Team USA was making him think about buying a team. That's when rumors about Josh Harris and Co looking to sell the team popped up.

    Then Jerry Colangelo reportedly engineered the Ish Smith trade behind Sam Hinkies back, and came close to 2 other trades behind Sam's back, and that's what lead to the famous Letter of resignation from Hinkie when there was whispers that JC was basically going to run everything. That's when Hinkie was offered the CO-GM/Head of Analytics job, and he turned it down sticking with his decision. Reportedly it was Jerry Colangelo who leaked that letter.

    After that the reports were that it was Bryan Colangelo and 1 other guy for the GM job. The story was that Jerry advised to go elsewhere and he 'recused himself' from it because Bryan was involved. Bryan was hired without an interview. Just given the job and didn't meet most players or coaches until when or after he was hired.

    Of course I'm pissed that my team is in the center of this, but **** the owners and **** the NBA. You forced out Sam Hinkie because you thought he was going to ruin the NBA. Meanwhile you forced in this piece of **** human being and his snake in the weeds father on this team because he was going to be 'more open' about proceedings than Sam was.

    I hope we fire him and his snake father and they get ****ing blackballed from the NBA for life.

    actually if he did it there should be a criminal investigation since it is against the law (HIPPA) which is why the truth will come out on this whole thing... some DA somewhere will want to make a name for himself and will subpoena the records which will leave no doubt on who controlled those twitter accounts

    Eh I don't think it will go that far. Most because he didn't say why he failed a physical (Okafor), or what the injury was (Embiid), or what was going wrong (Fultz). He just said he failed the physical, ask about that; and if saying that out loud is grounds for an investigation then why not investigate criminally why the story about IT failing his got out there and how it was worse. Heck most injuries could fall under that.

    West was being paid millions by the Warriors at the time.
