It's a very simple mandate to follow, but somehow it's still lost in society: innocent to proven guilty.
That's the approach that should be taken with The Ringer's report of the bizarre Twitter scenario surrounding Sixers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo.
There are only tangible gains today as Colangelo runs one of the five Twitter accounts associated with the report for reference and the Sixers have opened an investigation.
Colangelo has the connection with the other Twitter account, claiming that "someone" wants to get him. These statements should also be taken at face value if they are not proven wrong.
If we say that if Colangelo is really involved in the situation or the storm, and the people in the NBA are just too strong, we might witness the end of a front office career spanning nearly 30 years ,
Overall, it is a chaotic situation for the Sixers to deal with probably the biggest offseason in the franchise history.
Perhaps the only thing for the Sixers at this point is when a move is made, a former open-market front-office manager specializes in handling chaotic situations: Griffin, the former Griffin
Cleveland Cavaliers general manager, teamed with the team seven seasons last summer (the last 3 1
in the Cavaliers reached three NBA finals in a row (now a quarter without Griffin) and the first championship in franchise history in 2016.
Griffin, who currently serves as an analyst for NBA TV, could help create a roster of these amazing accomplishments while working under the ever-unpredictable Cav's owner, Dan Gilbert. Remember him? The same Gilbert, who often undermines his own coaches, players and front office members. The man behind the notorious Comic San letter to James decided to bring his talents to South Beach.
Oh, and James talks about Griffin, who has a great relationship with the superstar. You know, the guy with three championships, four MVP awards, 14 All-Star Game appearances, and countless other accolades that are the Top Free Agent goal of the Sixers this summer.
If none of you appreciated Griff I and hopefully all the people of Cleveland! Thank you, what you did for the team for 3 years! We've got 1?

So, while Colangelo absolutely deserves the benefit of the doubt, until there is a solid reason to pull it off, Griffin is a man who is extremely respected in the league and would be a more than capable substitute. One that might help the Sixers land the Free Agent Jewel they've been craving all along.
