The above note written and ‘gramed by Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. It is a response to Kevin Durant saying that James Harden should replace Wade in Sports Illustrated list of Top 10 NBA players.
Durant, No. 2 on the list behind LeBron James, was asked by CineSports‘ Noah Coslov about the rankings…
Coslov: “So, who’s missing from the top 10?”
Durant: “I think your missing, um, James Harden.”
Coslov: “Alright. So if you’re missing Harden, who do you take off the li…”
Durant jumps in: “Dwyane Wade.”
Yep, that’s pretty much how it went. And Wade saw it. Wade wrote the note. Wade took a picture of the note. Wade put a Lo-Fi filter on the note, just so that Durant got the point, and sent it to the Instagalaxy (trademark, dibs).
So, between rounds of doodle jump, Durant found that on Instagram. He took the time to Tweet…
Show me don’t tweet me..

First, you might say “Durant, it was Instgram, he did show you!” In fact, a lot of people said just that. Because, technically, he did. And, really, he did when the Heat and Thunder played in the 2012 NBA Finals and Harden was nowhere to be found while Wade and LeBron played brilliantly.
Not that we needed any more drama surrounding the Heat, but how great would a Heat-Thunder Finals be now? And, what about this commercial? Doesn’t it have so much more context now? Run. It. Again.
