For clarity: this is Colangelo’s, not anyone else’s doing. Cropped it, but one of these accounts is also associated with an email address that clearly belongs to Bryan. https://t.co/NzfZpxwXtv

The team issued a statement Wednesday morning:
An online media outlet filed a story linking multiple social media accounts to 76ers President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo. The allegations are serious and we have commenced an independent investigation into the matter. We will report the results of that investigation as soon as it is concluded.
This was Colangelo’s statement included in the piece.
“Like many of my colleagues in sports, I have used social media as a means to keep up with the news. While I have never posted anything whatsoever on social media, I have used the @Phila1234567 Twitter account referenced in this story to monitor our industry and other current events. This storyline is disturbing to me on many levels, as I am not familiar with any of the other accounts that have been brought to my attention, nor do I know who is behind them or what their motives may be in using them.”
If its not Colangelo, than it is someone who has intimate knowledge of the Sixers organization. Do you believe Bryan was secretly tweeting from all five accounts or was he set up?
Sixers star center Joel Embiid jumped in on the fun, but later clarified that he doesn’t believe the rumors.
