Carmelo Anthony may not have a ring in the NBA, but he did win an NCAA title with Syracuse back in 2003. That may not seem like a very long time ago to most, but to Jimmy Butler, it might as well be a lifetime ago.

Wednesday, the Syracuse Orange faced the ASU Sun Devils in a play-in game to see who would get to go to the big dance. Melo, being the proud Syracuse alumnus that he is, shared a graphic of the final score after the Orange's win to show some support.

Butler, who has had a few social media run-ins this month, sensed an opportunity to chirp Melo, and he most certainly took it, commenting below the image.




The jab was clearly a joke from Butler, but he seems to be developing a bit of a reputation as one of the NBA's premiere trash talkers online. Although, while he way be challenging for the title, Joel Embiid clearly still sits upon the throne.
