Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant are getting a little 1-on-1 in before the season starts.
Well, on Twitter, anyway.
Durant told CineSport in a video interview that he believes his former Oklahoma City teammate James Harden should be considered one of the top 10 players in the NBA, and Wade — a three-time NBA champion with the Miami Heat — should not.
So Wade responded by posting a message on a social media site Tuesday night that was clearly directed at Durant, saying in part: "Note to self. Make him respect your place in history … again."
Durant's tweet in response:
Show me don't tweet me..— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) September 25, 2013
Wade averaged 22.6 points in the 2012 NBA Finals against Durant, Harden and the Thunder. Harden, who now plays for Houston, averaged 12.4 points in that series.
