Dwyane Wade Says Mini-Feud With Kevin Durant is Real

The online trash talking with Kevin Durant isn’t part of some covert Gatorade promotional stunt, Dwyane Wade claims. The Heat superstar says the exchange was sincere. Per the Miami Herald: “Asked Thursday night if Durant’s comment that James Harden should replace Wade on Sports Illustrated’s list of the Top 10 players was uncalled for, Wade said: ‘Everyone has an opinion. We’re in an age now where everyone uses their opinion. That was it. He had an opinion. I had a response.’ Asked if their exchange was a joke, he smiled and said, ‘No.’ To refresh for those who might have missed it: Wade responded to Durant’s comment on Tuesday night by tweeting: ‘Note to self – make him respect your place in history… again… Don’t believe me. Just watch.’ To which Durant responded: ‘Show me. Don’t tweet me.’ Harden told Comcast SportsNet in Houston today that he believes the Wade/Durant exchange was genuine. [...] Rockets center Dwight Howard said: ‘I told James [to] just stay away from [getting involved in the Wade/Durant back and forth]. We do our talking on the floor.’”

    The fact that Black Rick Flair is denying it can only mean one thing, the beef is a PR stunt. *Welp*

    Watch Wade take the 5 games off prior to the Rockets matchup so he can be fresh. lol

    I for one thought the note he posted was kinda corny, not to mention the fact that KD never questioned his place in history, but it makes for a little future on-court drama so I’ll allow it.

    KD need to show some respect to the Champ.

    D. Wade plays with heart in the court, something that KD still has to learn, maybe D. Wade can help him with that, but he must apologized for disrespecting the Champ..

  • davidR

    lol oh dwight

  • R32

    Wade & Co. made KD cry in in 2012 Finals.

  • Roger Rogers

    what in the hell are you talking about. “heart in the court”? stop this stupidity.

  • LP @ThisisEther

    Dwayne iverson???

  • Sean B

    Obviously he meant “heart on the court”… seriously if you’re going to resort to pointing out people’s typos do not bother to respond.

  • LakeShow

    Can you imagine actually writing that up… I’d feel like an 11 year old.

  • Allan

    Wade should’ve Eurostepped by KD’s comment. When they see each other, they’ll be like

  • Wings23

    When Durant said show me don’t tweet or w.e I thought that was ridiculous…KD must have selective memory

  • spit hot fiyah

    judging by the handwriting, he might have asked an 11 year old to write it for him

  • spit hot fiyah

    maybe he meant indoors and not out doors

  • therichardkirby

    If it’s the first round of the playoffs, the locker room floor. Am I right, Dwight?

  • Dfrance

    Not only did he write it up, but then he took a photo and put it on the internet. There were many points at which he could have reconsidered lol.

  • AiRsMiTh

    Athletes who are hypocrites… NEVER gets old. Almost does, but in the end, you realize the things that they say are too good to be true.

    Maybe he’s changed? :)


  • Clos1881

    Smh shut up Dwight and use your own advice i still think Dwight is easily top 10 tho

  • leds

    dwight u betta shut up before KD get yuh

  • jmm

    Dwight tells James not to speak about the situation to the press.

    James blinks and then literally rolls on the ground crying with laughter along with everyone else in the room.

    Dwight bursts in to tears.

  • robb

    Hey, Dwight’s right. Good clowns don’t talk.

  • Drig

    He said Harden was a better player than Wade right now. Never said Harden’s career is better than Wade’s.

    Of course he respects what Wade has done but Wade is just coming off his worst season ever ( eye-test, don’t know if the stats support me ) while Harden has come to grips with being the man and now has an improved team ( which can help him get more plaudits if the team finishes in the top 4 )

    Also, to say Durant lacks heart is plain idiocy.

  • Drig

    You meanie. Dwight meant that he’d do the talking on the dance floor in Disney World!

    Always misunderstood.

    (Just in case someone didn’t get it, google sarcasm. )

    ooooh that big boy comment coming from Dwight LOL.


  • RedDragon10

    Making excuses already?

  • IggI

    Obviously you don’t watch or play basketball if you don’t know what I’m talking about when I say “play with heart in the court”..

  • Anakin Flow

    whats funny is that the media instigated the beef … kd was ask a question who shouldve been tooking off and he said wade…. maybe he could’ve took the politically corrrect response and not said wade name but its not like he came up with that question he was ask a question and honestly wade has been declining statistically since LBJ has been on the team and his health … wade can still give u 19 and 20 but hes not flash anymore … and he doesnt need to be he can play the second opt now since u got LBJ infront of you so was KD wrong? dont think so ….. i think wade is not better than kobe or melo .. if anything his should be 10 than 8 … thats my opinion .

  • Alvin Mitchell

    Durant is trying to get in Wade head he trying to make up from not talking for Harden not to be traded that’s way he said what he said to wade Thank about it.PS. Will they make it to the championship game no (Harden) no WestBrook.
