146233373“The Durantula” and “Flash” have differing takes on who belongs in the Top 10 players in the NBA. Kevin Durant feels D=Wade should drop out of the top 10 for ex-teammate James Harden, but the former Marquette Golden Eagle disagrees. After learning of Durant’s Top 10 did not include him, he posted on his Instagram account “”9-24-13: Kevin Durant said James Harden should replace me in the top 10 …. Note to self: Make him respect your place in history .. — again …”

Harden, now in Houston, does not have 3 rings like D-Wade

Wade is a 3 time NBA Champion, but has seen his points per game dip every year since his career high 30.2 ppg in 2008-09. However, he was still considered good enough to slot in at #8 on S.I.’s rankings. Wade is determined to re-establish himself as one of the top 5 in the league and Durant’s comments could be even more fuel to the fire.

Here are the controversial S.I. NBA Top 10 Rankings along with my own:
