  Steven Adams says he accidentally liked photo criticizing Carmelo Anthony An NBA player is once again in a bit of hot water over Instagram likes. Fans caught Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams liking a reply to an Instagram comment about which Thunder star was the most valuable. It depicted Adams, Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Carmelo Anthony, and Adams just so happened to like a comment that stated “all of them except Melo.”LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOO

A report in May said that George was going to leave the Thunder , but that seemed to contradict some of the other prevalent information. OKC’s brass seemed to be confident that their relationship was strong, and George gave hints during the season that he liked it with the Thunder . The 28-year-old

LeBron James is not the only superstar who could hit the free agent market in the summer with Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George possibly joining him in the pool of players without a contract.

There are mixed opinions on what will happen with Paul George this summer, but one reporter is cautioning against assuming PG13 won’t return to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The New York Times’ Marc Stein reported in his newsletter that “there is a growing belief around the league that Oklahoma City has a far better chance to retain the free agent-to-be Paul George than many believed when the Thunder crashed out of the first round of the playoffs.”

A report in May said that George was going to leave the Thunder, but that seemed to contradict some of the other prevalent information. OKC’s brass seemed to be confident that their relationship was strong, and George gave hints during the season that he liked it with the Thunder.

The 28-year-old has said he hopes the team with whom he signs his next contract will be his last. There have long been reports tying him to the Los Angeles Lakers, and another Western Conference team is expected to make a big push for him. But don’t count out OKC.

Report: Carmelo Anthony will not opt out of his contract .
Following a horrible initial season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, it appears that future Hall of Fame forward Carmelo Anthony will remain with the team for at least one more year. In news that’s not necessarily too shocking, Marc Stein of The New York Times is reporting that the 34-year-old Anthony will not opt out of his contract for the 2018-19 season. Anthony had until midnight Saturday morning to decide whether to opt out of his deal. The 10-time All-Star is set to earn nearly $28 million next season in Oklahoma City. Anthony is coming off a 2017-18 campaign that saw him average just 16.2 points per game while shooting at a 40 percent mark from the field. It was the lowest scoring output of Anthony’s career. While OKC would have likely preferred Anthony to opt out, the team is pretty much stuck with him. No other squad is going to take on that bloated contract. Meanwhile, a contract buyout seemingly makes little sense. Anthony’s decision not to opt out could also have an impact on what teammate Paul George does in free agency next month. That’s certainly something to keep an eye on.
