Carmelo Anthony responds to trade rumors with hilarious Instagram post
Earlier this week, a report surfaced which stated that the Celtics expressed interest in dealing for Carmelo Anthony at the trade deadline, but that Anthony wouldn’t waive his no-trade clause to play for Boston.
The request, if true, most likely never got to Anthony himself, because these things are almost always handled by agents and representatives of the players and teams involved. And in fact, it’s very possible that Anthony may never have even known that the Celtics reached out to gauge his interest.
All of that would make his latest Instagram post — one of a younger Anthony yawning while getting his cornrows braided — seem like a perfectly reasonable response.
