After Kevin Durant and Dwyane Wade sparred on Twitter about whether or not Wade is a top 10 player, there was speculation that the whole thing was a promotional stunt. Mainly because the two are paired against one another in those Gatorade ads.
But when Wade was asked recently about the Twitter sparring, he told the Miami Herald that it was indeed real. And the two both believe what they said.
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.”
Again, I can’t wait until the Heat and Thunder meet for the first time on Jan. 29.
