    Default This whole Bryan Colangelo Twitter Account Fiasco is just crazy if it's true.

    If you haven't heard the news, there's a rumor that Bryan Colangelo has multiple twitter accounts that he uses to criticize Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz, disclosed sensitive information, and outlined team strategies. If you didn't know, Colangelo is the President of Basketball Operations for the Philadelphia 76ers.

    You can read the story at the link below.

    This is so insane that it can't be true right?

    Would be one of the biggest scandals the NBA has seen in years. Especially because of the part about disclosing information that isn't public.

    Sixers are doing their own private investigation. They were just speculating that the 5 "same" non-basketball contacts that all accounts had, could have been followed by syncing the contacts on his (their) phone. Just wow.

    Makes you wonder what else is going on out there. Hell, are any accounts on this forum linked to NHL teams?

    Damn...I wish I had known about those accounts before they were taken offline...obviously the behavior is unacceptable in many respects, but at the same time, I love the honesty and "inside" knowledge that was shared. Imagine if you could seriously get the honest opinions of a GM in hockey about player values, off-ice issues involving players, injury news, potential trades, etc.? That stuff would be awesome! I mean, there are so many strange trades that happen in the NHL that it makes you wonder what else is going on behind the scenes that we aren't told about.
    12 team, H2H, salary cap
    1 pt/G or A, 2 pts/W, 1 pt/OTL, 1 pt/SO

    Defense: S. Gostisbehere, M. Heiskanen, J. Trouba, S. Girard

    Listening to the FAN this morning JP Morosi mentioned that most if not all GMs have accounts just to monitor and read things. But I guess that is pretty expected in our day in age.

    I would think every team at least has an assistant with an anonymous account to monitor things.

    There are definitely burner accounts for every team / organization. The difference here being these accounts were used to not only defend Colangelo, but they released health / injury details that violated team policy, and trade details. Not to mention, they criticized current and former players and team members. If this is Colangelo, anyone in his inner circle, or a family member, he is toast. Nuts.

    If anyone is looking to stream a good Philly station talking about this... here you go.
