Sports Illustrated recently ranked the Top 100 players in the NBA, with one glaring player who was left off the Top 10 list: Houston Rockets star James Harden. In a recent interview, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant was told about the rankings, and spoke up to show support for his good friend and former teammate.

Durant believes that Harden should be on the Top 10 list, replacing Dwyane Wade, who came in at no. 8. That then lead to this response from Wade:

Wade shared the message on his instagram account, to which Durant promptly replied:

Show me don't tweet me..

Harden, meanwhile came in at no. 11 on the list, while Rockets center Dwight Howard finished at no. 7.

Lebron James ranked at the top of the list, with Durant right behind him at no. 2.
