Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant has his own opinions about SI.com’s list of the NBA’s Top 10 players.

Durant was recently asked who he thought was missing on the list in the top 10.

“I think you’re missing James Harden.” He was then asked, “Who would you take off?“

“Dywane Wade,” Durant said, via the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Wade was No. 8 on the list. Harden came in at No. 11.

Wade didn’t exactly appreciate that assessment, sending an Instagram picture in part saying “Note to self….Make him respect your place in history.”

Wade’s teammate forward LeBron James came in at No. 1 and Durant was No. 2.

They're both right.  Wade has the rings and the legacy, but Durrant is right in asserting that Wade is not the player he used to be, and probably not Top 10 (other than sort of a lifetime achievement thing).

Duran is just bitter. His never winning a tittle you'll see. Plus wade won a championship without Bron while Duran with a super team gets eliminate lol what a joke. Well said from a #championhater
