Wade's Note to Durant

Feud durant vs wade

If you have been keeping an eye on the sports world in the last day or so then you’ve probably heard about the Durant Vs Wade social media “dispute”. Even though everything points to this being a troll on the media or maybe even a publicity stunt for Gatorade, don’t worry, we are here to recap it all for you.


[dropcap type=”circle” color=”#FFFFFF” background=”#f2594b”]1[/dropcap]It all started with Sports Illustrated releasing their annual  Top 100 NBA players list and leaving out Kevin Durant’s former teammate James Harden out of the top 10 setting the stage for heated debates on who should of been included and who should of been excluded.

SI’s Top 10 list finished as follows: 1. Lebron James 2.Kevin Durant 3.Chris Paul 4.Tony Parker 5. Russell Westbrook 6. Tim Duncan 7. Dwight Howard  8. Dwyane Wade 9. Kobe Bryant and 10. Carmelo  Anthony  ( James Harden came in at 11th)

In his first season as a starter, James Harden, Age 24, averaged 25.9 points, 5.8 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.8 steals and shot 43.8 %with a PER of 23.

Dwyane Wade, Age  31, again, had an injury plagued season, and still managed to average 21.2 points. 5.1 assists, 5 rebounds and 1.9 steals and shot 52.1 % with a PER of 24.

[dropcap type=”circle” color=”#FFFFFF” background=”#f2594b”]6[/dropcap]Training camp opens on Oct 1st, but we are going to have to wait until Jan. 29th which is when the Thunder come to Miami for their first of 2 meetings this season. So publicity stunt or not, it’ll be interesting to see Wade and Durant meet on the court once again.
