The Carmelo Anthony experiment in Oklahoma City has been a failure.

You know who else thinks so? Steven Adams, apparently.

The Thunder big man liked an Instagram comment saying "all of them except Melo" were OKC's most valuable stars, referring to himself, Paul George and Russell Westbrook:

Welp.

Adams reached out through the Thunder to explain to B/R that his "like" was an accident, a case of his big fingers hitting the wrong button and not criticism of his teammate. It wouldn't be the first time an NBA star inadvertently liked an Instagram post.

In April, Kevin Durant said his like of a comment calling former teammate Westbrook the "problem" in Oklahoma City was an accident. 

Accidental Instagram likes aside, Melo was a bust last season. He scored a career-low 16.2 points per game and shot a career-worst 40.4 percent from the floor, all the while continuing to play below-average defense. The Thunder were better without Melo on the court during long stretches of their first-round series against the Utah Jazz.

Melo's $27.9 million player option for 2018-19 is also a weight hanging on the Thunder's neck this summer, as it will prevent them from making any major signings in free agency.
