ESPN justified the ranking by explaining that the Jones fracture in Durant's right foot bumped last year's No. 2 down six spots, with Royce Webb stating "Instead of shooting jumpers, he's shooting selfies."
While Durant didn't lash out as hard as Bryant, he did tweet (then delete) a reply in which he says both his jumper and selfie games are on point.
It sounds like Durant isn't too hung up on his slide down the rankings.
Update: Saturday, October 25
Durant showed that he doesn't care by responding to a person who asked him about it.
