Kevin Durant has an issue with Dwyane Wade being ranked one of the top 10 players in the NBA by Sports Illustrated. That’s because the NBA superstar thinks his former teammate James Harden should be on the list instead … at least that’s the comment he made during an interview with CineSport.
On Tuesday night, Wade posted an image of a handwritten note on his Instagram account addressing the Durant’s opinion:
“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.”
Wade and his Miami Heat defeated Durant and his Oklahoma City Thunder in five games during the 2012 NBA Finals … hence the “Make him respect your place in history again” line. Wade, a former NBA Finals MVP, captioned the image: “Don’t believe me just watch.”
After seeing the note, Durant took to Twitter to send Wade another message:
“Show me don’t tweet me.”
Something tells us that when the NBA season picks back up, Wade will do all he can to do just that.
