Three of the accounts in question, including Eric Jr., have a recovery phone number ending in 91. The big question of the day was who connected to Bryan Colangelo had a phone number matching that description. Multiple writers confirmed that they had a different number for him, and that Sam Hinkie, suspected by some, doesn’t have a matching number.
But thanks to Twitter user (@2003muub), who responded to a Rich Hoffman Tweet, which proved timestamps from Eric Jr. Tweets in some cases came during times when Colangelo was on the podium, with a screenshot showing that the recovery phone number for email@example.com – the email address for Bryan’s wife Barbara – ended in 91.
A simple Google search for her name returns the following result from Upper Canada College’s parents organization site:
Upper Canada College, a high school (Canada is so weird), was attended by Mattia Colangelo.
It’s also worth noting that Twitter returns multiple results when this phone number is used on the password result page:
This certainly calls into question Colangelo’s “someone is out to get me” claim, which he issued to Jordan Schultz, a sports guy and son of former Starbucks CEO and current chairman Howard Schultz:
Bryan Colangelo tells me via text: "Someone's out to get me. … This is clearly not me." Colangelo adds that he's "hopeful to resolve this soon."

That one now becomes a bit a harder to explain– especially when you consider that the accounts went dark once the Sixers were contacted about the emails. At best, Colangelo’s wife was spilling team secrets and trolling players on Twitter. At worst, Colangelo was doing some of it himself and using her phone number. I can’t imagine this ends well for him.
