Unverified Sam Hinkie Breaks Twitter Silence, Howard Eskin Responds

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Former Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie has broken his silence on Twitter, we think.

An unverified account on Twitter @samhinkie, which is thought by many to be a real account, published its first 10 tweets on Wednesday. The bio of the account says:

"Husband. Dad. Leader. Reader. Formerly a bunch of things, including President & GM of the Philadelphia 76ers."
