Twitter reacts to Rockets reportedly targeting Carmelo Anthony

The Houston Rockets were oh, so close to beating the Golden State Warriors during the Western Conference Finals this past season. They put together a phenomenal season, then arguably came within a Chris Paul injury of making it to the NBA Finals.

This offseason hasn’t been kind to the Rockets, adding insult to injury. Houston lost both Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah A Moute, who were both critical perimeter defenders last season.

Now, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the team is “determined” to sign Carmelo Anthony once he’s free as a response to these losses.

That’s like trying to plug up a busted dam with your finger. It’s just not going to work. Not surprisingly, Twitter had some pretty demonstrative reactions to this news.
