Joel Embiid to alleged Bryan Colangelo burner account: ‘Joel told me that @samhinkie IS BETTER AND SMARTER THAN YOU’

The 76ers are launching an investigation into Bryan Colangelo's alleged Twitter accounts, but public perception has already brought the hammer down on Colangelo.

76ers president Bryan Colangelo’s alleged burner Twitter accounts repeatedly bashed Joel Embiid – for concealing an injury from the team, for dancing at a Meek Mill concert while hurt, for “playing like a toddler having tantrums,” for being too egotistical, for being lazy, for being selfish, for being “distracted by models and social media” and for “big selfish baby.”

That won’t stop Embiid from getting his jokes off.


Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

If it turns out Colangelo wasn’t behind these accounts, Embiid can shrug this off as a joke (and relish all the attention he got in the interim).

If Colangelo tweeted all those things, Embiid’s point about Sam Hinkie being smarter speaks for itself. That would also mean Colangelo dug his hole even deeper by lying to his star player in this time of crisis.
