Kevin Durant rejected the notion that Dwyane Wade is one of the top 10 players in the NBA.
In an interview with CineSport, Durant was discussing Sports Illustrated’s list of the NBA’s top players, and stated that his former teammate Harden should be on the list. The Oklahoma City forward Durant is ranked No. 2; Miami guard Wade landed in the No. 8 spot.
When asked who should have been left out to make room for Harden, Durant replies hastely that, “Dwyane Wade” didn’t deserve to be on the list.
That sparked a rebuttal from Wade, who responded immediately via Twitter and Instagram:
“Don’t believe me just watch,” he posted along with an image.
Durant tweeted Wade back saying:
“Show me don’t tweet me..”
The NBA season starts in six weeks, so the Heat’s Wade and the Thunder’s Durant will get to ‘show and prove’ when they face off in January.
