Bryan Colangelo resigned Thursday following an investigation into his wife's anonymous use of social media.
As the news broke Thursday afternoon, social media had plenty of reactions.
There were jokes …
… and legal implications as well.
One man, whose internet digging drew a preliminary link between Colangelo's wife and the burner accounts, had some things to say.
Then came the reaction from around the NBA.
Nerlens Noel chimed in first, on Instagram. The Mavericks' big man was traded by the Sixers in February 2017, but just a week before he was gone, one of Bottini's burner accounts said it would rather see Noel gone instead of Jahlil Okafor, calling Noel "a selfish punk."
About an hour after the news broke, current Sixer Justin Anderson posted on Instagram. He seemed to share his thoughts on the move.
The post might seem innocuous. But former Sixers teammates Okafor and Nik Stauskas, along with ex-Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith, didn't hold back in the comments section of Anderson's post.
