Hello, friends. Welcome to the latest edition of the Dime Podcast, in which we try out very best to break down the single most ridiculous story in the NBA this season. As always, we invite you to subscribe to the podcast on your podcast listening platform of your choosing (Omny, iTunes, Google, Stitcher) and leave us a review.

Today, Martin and Robby are joined by our pal Michael Levin (@Michael_Levin), the perfect person to discuss the ongoing saga centered around Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo and five burner Twitter accounts. You can get a full rundown after the jump, but before that, make sure you give Mike a follow on Twitter, check out his podcast (Rights to Ricky Sanchez, which you can follow on Twitter here and listen to here), and stay in the loop regarding the second season of his TV show, Trial & Error, which airs July 19 on NBC. Oh, and check out the piece he wrote for us about The Process at the beginning of the postseason.

Here’s a rundown of some of the things you can expect on this edition of the pod.

  • Mike tells us how he learned about the Colangelo controversy
  • Appreciating the sleuthing done by Sixers Twitter
  • An analysis of how absolutely insane this situation is
  • This thing has levels, all of them weird
  • How exhausting getting tips on Twitter must be
  • The craziness that is someone piecing this all together
  • The word “butt” got censored, which might be the weirdest part of this
  • Is Colangelo safe even if his wife is behind these Twitter accounts?
  • The awful timing of all this happening
  • IMPORTANT ASIDE: We do not endorse homewrecking
  • Who replaces Colangelo should he get bounced?
  • This story goes deeper than Twitter accounts, somehow making it weirder
  • How cool it would have been if How I Met Your Mother was around during this Cavs’ run
  • Looking forward to the offseason in Philadelphia, beyond the Colangelo drama
  • Who does Mike want the Sixers to draft at No. 10?
  • Defining a successful offseason in Philadelphia

All that and much, much more on today’s edition of The Dime Podcast.
