Timberwolves Twitter account trolls Bryan Colangelo amid scandal
The Minnesota Timberwolves couldn’t help but troll Philadelphia 76ers president Bryan Colangelo upon the recent scandal that broke out after The Ringer reported he allegedly own five Twitter burner accounts, which he used to criticize players and staff within the organization.
The team out west tweeted a since-deleted funny video in which they logged out from a burner account and into their true team account, in jest to the story that took the NBA by storm just days before the start of The Finals.
NBA Twitter remains undefeated. 😂
Now the Timberwolves have joined in on the Bryan Colangelo burner account joke (though they later deleted the video).

The Wolves likely regretted their decision as this tweet went viral, as the league has often cracked down on team Twitter accounts making fun of other teams, hoping to see a more diplomatic approach within the league.
The original report, which was put into question by Joel Embiid and Colangelo himself makes some interesting points, which has led the Sixers to privately investigate the matter through a third-party company.
