Adelaide 36ers co-captain Kevin White has taken to twitter with an emotional account of relations with the club's former coach Joey Wright. The Club have reacted by promising a full investigation. 

Wright is accused of 'unacceptable' behaviour during his time at the club that he left earlier this week by mutual consent. 

The confronting tweets show screenshots of apparent messages that imply players wellness scores are down to them "being funny". And the user 'Joey Wright' responds "F*** all of them" going on to shockingly say "Hopefully it gets low enough for them to hang themselves. F***ing dicks."
