The Ringer's explosive investigation into Sixers president Bryan Colangelo potentially using fake Twitter accounts has been the talk of the NBA since it was published earlier this week. Colangelo claimed he did not operate four of the five accounts in question, but the evidence seemed damning.

The internet is a magical place. Since The Ringer's article went live, NBA fans—specifically Philly diehards—have committed to getting to the bottom of this weird situation. It appears Colangelo may be telling the truth—he may have been unaware of most of the accounts, though he did own up to operating one of the five accounts in question.

A member of his family, however, may have been behind the other accounts. One of the accounts, which operated under the name Eric Jr., appears to have been tweeting while Colangelo was in a media session.

So, who was it? One Twitter user, @legsanity, compiled a compelling case that the account is run by Colangelo's wife, Barbara Bottini. Check out his full breakdown in this Twitter moment. The evidence was strange and striking. Below are a few of the most interesting pieces, but you should definitely read the full moment.

The phone number and email attached to the Eric Jr. account appear to both belong to Bottini. Her number also appears to match two of the other accounts.

This could all be a coincidence, of course...but that seems unlikely. In the fall, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's wife was exposed for using fake Twitter accounts to defend her husband.

The Sixers have launched an independent investigation into the matter.
