Premature Dikembe Mutombo Tweet Reveals Vast Conspiracy to Fix 2016 NBA Draft Lottery (Tweets)
Yesterady afternoon, Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo took to Twitter to congratulate the Philadelphia 76ers on winning the 2016 NBA Draft Lottery.
The problem? When Mutombo published his tweet at 4:36 P.M., the 76ers had not yet won the 2016 NBA Draft Lottery.
The logical answer is no. Mutombo isn’t affiliated with the Sixers. He only played there for two seasons, so he’s not exactly a franchise icon. It was probably just a mistake on Mutombo’s part, as he tried to explain in a followup tweet.

But we all know that’s not going to stop NBA Truthers from crying conspiracy.
Current Sixer Joel Embid had a little fun with the situation after the lottery.
