Sixers Twitter has been waiting and waiting and waiting. After nine days of waiting, the news finally arrived and Twitter showed up for it.
Bryan Colangelo resigned Thursday from his post as president of basketball operations after the conclusion of a week-long investigation. The Sixers’ official page broke the news in this tweet, which included a statement from 76ers managing partner Josh Harris.
And Twitter, well, had something to say about it. We sifted through some of the Sixers’ hundreds of mentions from this post and let’s just say, people are quite creative.
Here are some of the best responses:
Sixers Twitter remains undefeated.
Some people wear their favorite player's jersey to a game, others wear customized shirts promoting the opposing team’s fellow city franchise to fire its president of basketball operations.
So we know Sixers fans aren’t too happy about the lack of information from the organization regarding the burner Twitter account report involving Bryan Colangelo, but one fan made sure his opinion was known.
This fan was spotted Friday at the Phillies-Giants game in San Francisco, sitting directly behind home plate, in the first row, sporting a “Fire BC” shirt and a Sixers hat.
Check out his apparel for yourself:
You have to admire his commitment to the cause.
Because then he even changed his shirt to one reading “Where is Eric Jr?” — a Twitter account with which everyone is familiar.
Next up: 91, a well-known number in this whole story.
This one doesn't need an explanation.
Joel Embiid is back at it at his local Philly playground.
This time, he’s nailing what we could call a four-point shot from beyond a fence at a park on 10th and Lombard.
Watch as Embiid shoots over the only entity that is taller than him, a 10 (?)-foot fence and makes the first. He was definitely fouled on the second, so we’ll give him a pass on that. Then he runs off in a Stephen Curry-esque fashion.
Good to see Joel putting in three-point work in the offseason, even if the only thing that can defend him is a fence.
