Put the wood back on the fire, Trail Blazers fans.
In an Instagram video posted by House of Highlights, Blazers guard CJ McCollum was seen playing with “Mr. Trade Rumor” himself, Carmelo Anthony. The two NBA stars were taking part in the Academy Basketball’s “M7 Blackout Sessions”.
Here’s the full video posted earlier this evening:
Trail Blazers digital reporter Casey Holdahl reached out to McCollum about the timing of video:
If this footage was recorded today @CJMcCollum basically arrived in NYC from Africa and went straight to the gym https://t.co/FJgmdLyXEN— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) August 10, 2017
This was McCollum’s response:
It was today... I did however have time to shower and watch some GOT https://t.co/udNKm0i3y9— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) August 10, 2017
While it’s just a 20-second clip, maybe Anthony liked what he saw while playing with McCollum. What do you think? Is this video an encouraging sign for Portland, or much ado about nothing?
