Kevin Durant Gets 'Thunderstruck' | BR5

BR5Daily ShowApril 20, 2016

Welcome to BR5, your destination for Sports and Pop Culture.

Kevin Durant is one of the NBA's top scorers, but he's also quite the baller on the big screen as well. KD has taken his considerable talents to Hollywood with the Warner Bros release, "Thunderstruck", which is in stores now. 

"Thunderstruck" finds Durant playing himself, and unexpectedly switching talents with a klutzy 16-year-old boy who doesn't have the basketball skills of KD.

In fact, Brian, the hopelessly uncoordinated teen played by Taylor Gray, has absolutely zero basketball skills until inheriting Durant's talent. In a classic switch-a-roo, Durant suddenly can't hit a shot to save his life, and Brian becomes the star of his high school team.

Watch the video and find out Kevin Durant's thoughts on acting, as well as what fans would do to be him for a day.
