Besides Trump’s recent verbal attacks on the NFL and NBA, news of Carmelo Anthony’s trade from the New York Knicks to Oklahoma City Thunder has shocked the sporting world this weekend. League sources told ESPN that the 33-year-old veteran will be joining the Thunder in exchange for center Enes Kanter, forward Doug McDermott, and a second-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

This new roster now makes for one of the more interesting teams in the league. With Melo’s trade over to the Western Conference, NBA fans couldn’t help but to share their reactions on social media, focusing on the great divide that exists between the Eastern Conference.
