Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid provided an instant reaction on Tuesday to a bombshell story detailing burner accounts from president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo that criticized players, coaches and executives.
In case you missed it, a report from The Ringer detailed a scandal born from a source's claims that Colangelo used Twitter as a platform to do the following:
- Criticize NBA players, including Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor, and Nerlens Noel
- Publicly debate the decisions of his own coaching staff, as well as critique former Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie and Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri
- Telegraph the 2017 trade in which the Sixers acquired the no. 1 overall pick that would become Markelle Fultz
- Disclose nonpublic medical information about Okafor and gossip about Embiid and Fultz to members of the national and Philadelphia media
