Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams recently “liked” an Instagram comment that was quite critical of teammate Carmelo Anthony.

The post featured Adams, Anthony, Russell Westbrook, and Paul George followed by the caption, “Who’s more valuable to OKC?” The comment that Adams accidentally like said “All of them except Melo.”

Adams reached out to the Thunder’s PR Team on Monday to explain his mistake. He quickly blamed his “fat fingers.”

Anthony has a player option of $27.9 million, which he’ll need to pick up or turn down by June 29.
