Dwyane Wade Gets in Twitter/Instagram Beef With Kevin Durant

Categories: Sports

Earlier this week, Sports Illustrated unveiled their list of the best basketball players heading into the 2013-14 season. LeBron James was first, naturally. Though, Dwyane Wade's spot at eight didn't sit too well with the Oklahoma Thunder's Kevin Durant, who himself took the number two spot.

Durant suggested that his former teammate James Harden should be in the top 10 instead, which Wade did not appreciate.

Durant was asked about the list by CineSports.

"I think you're missing James Harden," Durant said.

When asked who should be bumped out of the top ten to make room for Hard, Durant replied, "Wade."

Harden is ranked 11th by SI, and Durant might have a bit of a point. Harden's stats last year were comparable to Wade's. Harden had slightly more points and assists per game, but Wade topped him in steals, rebounds, and field goal efficiency. But SI took into account the fact Wade was playing alongside LeBron James, and Harden was playing alongside, well, the Houston Rockets.

Wade didn't take Durant's comments too kindly, and posted a message for Durant on Instagram.

Durant received the message loud and clear and responded on Twitter.

Um, but don't you remember the 2012 Finals, Durant? He already did.

This is bullshit. If wade played on a crappy team he'd put up 30 a night. It's very tough fitting in with a great player like leb. It's more important to win championships. 3 finals in a row. 2 won. Plus the one he won with Shaq says a lot. What did harden win? Point made

A Wade who has "lost a step" still has more rings than Durant. Wade is one of the greatest for his position of all time. He should definitely be on the list over Harden...and I think it's all a Gatorade gimmick any way.

Durant was right though. We talkin' about individual ability, not body of work.

I'll take the shooting guard that plays defense... Wade. Even if he lost a step on offense, he's still a top 10 force.

KD's a jealous punk. We've beaten him 7 straight. Ask him what happened to his boy 1 1/2 years ago in the Finals vs. Wade

Kevin Durant is the epitome of the" nba sucker fool bitching cuz i ain't got a ring yet" ho. I suggest if he and Hardens relationship is so strong that he still yanks his jock even from another state, that they just come out and move to a state where same sex marriage is allowed. Just like the NT writer wrote about Durant's. tweet (don't tweet me, show me). He already did during the 2012 Finals

Durant was right. Wade is my favorite all the way back to Marquette but I'd be crazy to say he hasn't lost a step. He's still really good but he's not top 10

He should just respond to that last Tweet with a photo of his ring from the 2012 finals.

Durant has nothing to back up what he is saying, As Wade gets older he will not be the same player especially with his knee problem, but he does have 2 CHAMPIONSHIPS and NBA FINALS MVP under his belt, What does Durant have?

Even though wade is probably the only by I like in the heat .. the way he played last season definitely not a candidate

@Fulano De Tal  They said going into the season. They're not rating last year, they're going off of who they assume will be good or not.
