Anthony Davis' recent Instagram "like" might interest Celtics fans

You know what they say: The trade rumors don't really begin until the Instagram bread crumbs start dropping.

OK, they don't say that.

But check out the comment New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis supposedly "liked" on Instagram, which an NBA Reddit user discovered and The Athletic's Jared Weiss shared Thursday on Twitter:

To recap: Davis' official Instagram account seemed to support another user telling the Los Angeles Lakers' account that Davis is "happy" in New Orleans and "ain't going to your bum (a**) city."

If you read Davis' "like" as an official endorsement (it's not), then it means he doesn't want to play for the Lakers, who many believe have the inside track to trade for the All-Star forward.

That would appear to be good news for the Boston Celtics, who reportedly covet Davis and have the assets to trade for him, even if they have to wait until the offseason.

Then again, you also could read this as Davis insisting he's not going anywhere. He's under contract with the Pelicans until at least 2020, after all, and has insisted he loves New Orleans (despite all its shortcomings).

The most likely scenario: We're reading way too much into this, and Davis liking something on Instagram has nothing to do with where he does or doesn't go.

But that scenario is no fun, right?

Celtics center Enes Kanter gifts Bill and Hillary Clinton with Celtics jerseys

Celtics center Enes Kanter gifts Bill and Hillary Clinton with Celtics jerseys

Enes Kanter has made quite a few headlines on social media since joining the Boston Celtics this offseason. And on Monday night, he continued to make some waves.

Kanter posted pictures of himself meeting with former president Bill Clinton and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Kanter gifted both with custom Celtics jerseys and detailed a conversation he had with Bill in a recent tweet.

Clinton's savvy Kyrie Irving joke shows that he must be following the team. Perhaps he became a Celtics fan when he attended law school at Yale. But either way, his allegiance appears to be with the Celtics.

According to another tweet, Kanter was meeting with the Clintons to discuss human rights violations in Turkey. The Turkish Kanter has openly spoken out against Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

This likely won't be the last time that Kanter meets with political figures during his Celtics career.

Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck teams up with Michael Jordan, other NBA owners to launch ultra-premium tequila

What do the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, Charlotte Hornets, and Milwaukee Bucks all have in common?

No, they didn't all make the playoffs last year. The Lakers and Hornets didn't quite make the cut last year.

No, they're not all in the Eastern Conference. Though the Lakers used to reside in Minneapolis, they are a member of the Western Conference.

Do you give up? Well, the answer is that their owners are partnering together to launch a high-end tequila company, Cincoro Tequila. Darren Rovell was among those that reported the news on Monday, along with the cost per bottle.

This project will involve some of the most influential owners in the NBA in long-time Lakers owner and executive Jeanie Buss, Hornets owner and one of the greatest to play the game of basketball, Michael Jordan, Bucks owner Wes Edens, and, of course, Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck and his wife, Emilia Fazzalari.

It will be interesting to see if this company pans out. If it does, certainly expect Cincoro to have a presence in the NBA. And who knows? Maybe it will have a bit of a presence with the Celtics once it launches.
