In an interview released Tuesday by online video outlet CineSport, Durant said he disagreed with a recent Sports Illustrated ranking of the top 10 players in the NBA. Without elaborating on his reasoning, Durant said Wade, who was ranked eighth on the list, should be replaced in the top 10 by Durant’s former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate and current Houston Rockets star James Harden. Harden did not make the top-10 list.
Late Tuesday night, Wade posted a photo of a handwritten note on his Instagram account. It read: “9-24-13: Kevin Durant said James Harden should replace me in the top 10 …. Note to self: Make him respect your place in history .. — again …” It was accompanied by a statement from Wade that read: “Don’t believe me just watch.”
Durant took to Twitter to respond to Wade’s post.
