Jerry Colangelo weighs in on bizarre Twitter situation involving son Bryan
Bryan Colangelo rose up through the ranks with the Philadelphia 76ers thanks in large part to the influence of his father, and Jerry Colangelo is anxious to see how the situation with his son and some alleged social media activity is going to turn out.
The elder Colangelo spoke with Yaron Weitzman of Bleacher Report on Wednesday morning, and he stopped short of defending Bryan and said people would be wise to “be patient and wait for more information.”
Spoke to Jerry Colangelo this morning: "I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of info as the day unfolds. I’m anxious to get down to the facts. Until the facts are on the table it would be inappropriate (for me to speak)."

Jerry stepped down from his role as chairman of basketball operations with the 76ers after Bryan was hired as general manager in April 2016. The 78-year-old still serves as a special advisor to the organization.
Bryan is going to have a tough time convincing people he was not the person running the Twitter accounts, especially since much of what was written was clearly intended to make him look good. He has taken responsibility for one of the accounts, but fans have provided some information that makes it seem as though he could be the person behind all of them.
