The Portland Trail Blazers seem to be putting the cart way ahead of the horse with their talk of Carmelo Anthony. The New York Knicks forward has let it be known that he’d be willing to waive his no-trade clause to be possibly dealt to the Cleveland Cavaliers or Houston Rockets, not necessarily to any other teams. And New York has reportedly pulled back on trade discussions, at least for the time being, in the wake of adding Scott Perry as its new general manager.

That didn’t stop Portland stars Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum from talking about the damage they could do “when” they acquired Anthony. In fact, Lillard went so far as to say of the champion Golden State Warriors stopping the Melo-augmented Blazers, “Good luck,” a quote that got the attention of a certain Golden State player known for expressing his own opinions.

That’s Draymond Green, using his Instagram account Thursday to tell Lillard, “Give it a break,” with the help of some laughing emoji. The Warriors have dropped just one game to the Blazers while ousting Portland from the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, including a first-round sweep this year, so it’s not hard to see why Green would feel that Lillard and Co. would have to do a little more than add the 33-year-old Anthony to become a plausible threat.
