YWT #23- Bryan Colangelo, Burner Accounts and Strange Sports Stories

The biggest story in the NBA this week is not the Finals, where the Golden State Warriors hold a 2-0 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Instead, the basketball world is focused on Philadelphia 76ers general manager (for now) Bryan Colangelo.

Colangelo, Sixers GM since April 2016, stands accused of using multiple Twitter accounts to, among other things, criticize Sixers players, staff, and former GM Sam Hinkie. The Sixers have, at time of publication, not released a statement about the situation since last Tuesday. That statement announced that an independent investigation would be conducted into the origins of the social media accounts.

The court of public opinion, however informal, has already tried and convicted Colangelo, leading many to speculate on the fate of the troubled executive. An announcement of his firing is expected any day, as the NBA Draft and free agency loom near.

The guys on this week’s You Would Think give their opinion on the Colangelo matter. Also discussed are the recent struggles of the Philadelphia Phillies, capped off by frustrated comments made by Jake Arrieta on Sunday evening, and a short discussion on the role of Philadelphia sports fans, and the reputation that the diehards of the city have attained.
