Does anybody related to the Philadelphia 76ers organization know how to use social media?
We all remember the story of Bryan Colangelo's wife crafting the tweets that cost him his job; that was only this summer, after all. Now, another member of the Sixers organization has stupidly revealed sensitive information on Twitter. That would be shooting coach Drew Hanlen.
In a tweet where Hanlen was, nobly, defending embattled second-year point guard Markelle Fultz, he foolishly revealed to the greater internet the in-house secret that Fultz is still not completely healthy, despite playing again.
This is a completely boneheaded move, as information surrounding injuries in professional sports is considered confidential, and any release of that information through improper channels -- like this one -- could have serious repercussions.
I'm not sure this merits the termination of his position, but a mistake like that is a pretty big one.
As for Fultz, his shot remains...poor.

Yeesh. Whatever team-imposed punishment Hanlen gets, he better serve it quickly, because nobody needs a shooting coach more than Fultz does right now.
