It’s “Thunderstruck” week!!
This coming weekend Kevin Durant’s movie “Thunderstruck” hits the theaters nationwide. So rather than spending this week recovering from his gold medal trip to London and getting in a little run with teammates, he is going to be walking the red carpet and doing the movie promotion thing.
The movie’s premise isn’t exactly novel — somehow a small white kid in Oklahoma City is transferred Kevin Durant’s skills through a magic ball. Then much hilarity ensues, followed by a touching ending where everybody learned something. I’m guessing. I haven’t seen it, but I feel pretty safe with that prediction after seeing the trailer.
So what was the hardest part of all this? Here is what Durant told the Oklahoman.
Q: Heard you had some trouble deliberately missing shots.
A: “You guys know me, every time I get out on a court I try to get a little better. I was out there making a few shots, but once they yelled ‘action’ I had to miss. It’s difficult to try to miss shots after so many years of trying to make them, but I figured it out. It worked out well.”
It’s acting. He just needed to focus and find his inner Austin Daye and the missed jumpers would come naturally.
