Carmelo Anthony remains the subject of Instagram posts from rival players – but, for good reason.
Less than a week after the frustrated New York Knicks star was photoshopped into a Houston Rockets jersey by Nene, Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum got into the action.
On his personal account, McCollum shared a photoshopped version of Carmelo wearing – you guessed it – a Portland Trail Blazers uniform. Bonus points to McCollum for finding a good Photoshop to court the Knicks star.
McCollum is acting real thirsty here to get Carmelo in a Blazers uniform. But, the rumor of Melo heading to the Western Conference underachievers (at least last season) has some legs.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports the Blazers are interested in making a deal for Anthony. He wrote the Blazers are hoping to make a deal for the former All-Star if Carmelo is interested in waiving his no-trade clause to make it happen. There’s still healthy competition with the Houston Rockets to bring Carmelo to the Western Conference, but, the Blazers do have the assets to make a deal work.
Perhaps, McCollum’s Instagram post will become a reality, even if Portland isn’t the sexiest destination for Anthony.
