James Harden was caught in the middle of a social media feud between Kevin Durant and Dwyane Wade earlier this week that began when Durant said Harden should replace Wade in Sports Illustrated’s Top 10 list of players heading into the 2013-14 season.
KD’s comments didn’t sit well with D Wade, who responded with a hand-written message on Instagram that read, “Kevin Durant said James Harden should replace me in the Top 10. Note to self, make him respect your place in history…again.”
Q: How do you feel? Are you a top10 player?
Harden: “For sure. For sure. Last year, I had a chance to prove it. Kind of broke out of my shell a little bit.”
