Win a Signed Basketball

Enter to win a signed ball from NBA/Thunderstruck star Kevin Durant

August 20, 2012

Brian (Taylor Gray) and NBA Star Keving Durant (playing himself) switch talents in "Thunderstruck," in select theaters August 24.

Have you ever wished you had the talents of your favorite professional athlete? That dream comes true for one young fan in the new film Thunderstruck, in select theaters August 24. But it comes with a price. Teenager Brian (played by actor Taylor Gray) is a very uncoordinated young fan of NBA Star Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder (playing himself). When Brian wishes for Durant's talent, he becomes the star of his high school basketball team, which Durant suddenly can't make a shot to save his life. Brian must try to make things right before his hero's career is ruined—and learn what it means to be a true winner. Read on to learn more about the movie, and how you can win a signed basketball from Kevin Durant.
