Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant Engage in Heated Exchange Through Social Media

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffSeptember 25, 2013

Dwyane Wade clearly felt disrespected by Kevin Durant's claim that James Harden should replace him in Sports Illustrated's Top 10 players list, and he's using it for motivation this coming season:

Durant responded to the post a few minutes later by implying that Wade needs to back it up on the court: 

This exchange should make next season's Heat-Thunder matchups even more interesting. The two teams will meet in Miami on Jan. 29 before a Feb. 20 tilt in Oklahoma City. 

UPDATE: Wednesday, September 25, 3:19 p.m. ET

Miami's Udonis Haslem has gotten in on the action here via his Instagram.
