Earlier this week, Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade was not happy when Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder suggested he should be removed from a top ten player list and replaced by current Houston Rockets guard and former teammate, James Harden.

That lead to a small social media spat between Wade and Durant, though Harden, the middle man in all of this has been relatively quiet.

That might be because of Dwight Howard, his new teammate who told Harden to avoid Twitter and to do his talking on the floor:

Harden told Comcast SportsNet in Houston today that he believes the Wade/Durant exchange was genuine. Asked if he’s a top 10 player, Harden said: “For sure. Last year, I got a chance to prove it… I’ve kind of always been looked over.”

Rockets center Dwight Howard said: “I told James [to] just stay away from [getting involved in the Wade/Durant back and forth]. We do our talking on the floor.”

This of course comes from a guy who’s had more than one Twitter ‘fight’ (often with fans).

Still, solid advice from Howard, even if he doesn’t follow it himself.
