Didn't someone once put together a bunch of evidence that a certain poster was Mike Brown's son?

They're prepping the press release. He won't survive this.


surprised he has not already been terminated.....it would be nearly impossible to prove his or someone close to hims innocence....and the 76'ers cannot allow this to linger out there through the draft and FA.

they should bring back the man who started the rebuild to finish the process....and yes, I am a fan of Sam Hinkie.

well on the reverse, how can they prove 100% that he did it? Did they find logins of these accounts on his office computers and such?


It's not a criminal trial, it's a vote of confidence, so it's probably a case of he either tells him he did it, or he tells he doesn't and the owner doesn't believe him.

Sucks for him if he is truly innocent, but the truth does not matter in this situation unless he can prove it enough to alter perception. He simply cannot be effective in his position if the perception is that it was him or he was involved. It will be nearly impossible to "prove" innocence in this situation outside of some one totally unconnected stepping up and proving he/she was responsible. He can turn over 5 phones and 3 laptops.....and the public will likely assume he has 6 phones or 4 laptops.

Never liked BC. Thought he was an arrogant prick that made god awful decisions when he was with the Raptors.

76ers have hired Paul | Weiss (the Deflategate firm that produced the Wells Report) to look into BC's accounts so he'll be turning in his phones and other electronic devices.

Sources tell PhillyVoice: Part of delay in Sixers process was due to pressure from Jerry Colangelo, who threatened to damage team relationships in the event Bryan was fired.

Apparently twitter now thinks it was Bryan Colangelo's wife running the accounts.

It is funny that people on twitter correctly discovered it was his wife like hours after the original story broke.

The 6ers definitely needed to part ways with Bryan as soon as possible. It would have been a disaster to have him with the team when free agency started.

This current team was the result of Sam Hinkie's GM moves anyways....the Colangelos should've never been put in charge of the franchise.

Apparently, Colangelo's wife wiped her phone in an attempt to impede with the investigation.

Someone knew enough to take the twitter accounts private, not buying that his wife was the lone operator here. Doesn't matter now, BC will now move forward and find a new slant.

I really hope this blows back on Adam Silver more...he should have learned from Stern that interfering in a teams business is a bad idea.

To be honest, I think sports commissioners exist only to fall on the sword for ownership. The 29 other owners probably were sick of the blatant tanking and "asked" Silver to step in.
