The saga of Sixers president of basketbll operations Bryan Colangelo and five Twitter accounts to which he and/or his wife have been fairly convincingly linked has taken over the NBA Twittersphere this week. The franchise was in the process of launching an internal probe into who was responsible for anonymous Twitter accounts criticizing and personally attacking Philadelphia players, including star Joel Embiid, and disclosing information that could only be known by someone close to the team.
The team is looking into Colangelo's possible use of "burner" Twitter accounts. However, The Ringer alleged that Colangelo might be linked to four other accounts - "Eric jr", "HonestAbe", "Enoughunkownsources", and "Still Balling" - that did make controversial tweets.
The team announced a day later that they would be conducting an investigation into the reports, which is ongoing and yet to reach a verdict. The Ringer first reported the existence of the accounts and the privileged information being shared.

One person who will not be losing his job with the 76ers is coach Brett Brown. In addition, league sources told ESPN that Colangelo has told close associates he knows who made the tweets.
According to ESPN's league sources, the Sixers also commissioned an outside law firm to investigate the matter, an investigation that has already included Colangelo surrending his cell phones.

He said: "It's been a unusual season, obviously there's been a lot of speculation for however many months now". He did very well, seeing Napoli play is a spectacle.
Joel Embiid, the target of numerous personal attacks from the associated accounts, said he received word directly from Colangelo that he was not behind the keyboard when the messages were sent. However, things do not look promising for Colangelo at the moment.
The 52-year-old told Yahoo Sports that he believes there's someone "out to get him". "So I have talked to management at the 76ers, and the notion here was let's find out what's going on. If true though, that would be really bad", Embiid said.
"You have separate, sort of the chatter, and sort of what either fans or, frankly, the media are saying from the facts".
