Storyline

A fun and energetic family basketball movie starring Kevin Durant AS HIMSELF, a basketball star who switches talent with a klutzy 16 year old fan. When Brian, a hopelessly uncoordinated young fan magically switches talents with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team...while Kevin Durant suddenly can't make a shot to save his life. But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner involves working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero's season.

Don't Be Hatin!!
11 July 2013 | by ghandibonezSee all my reviews

I am from OKC and was underwhelmed when I heard Kevin Durant was making a kids/family movie. Then I checked it out, And was impressed. People say Durant did a bad job.. He played himself and seemed to do that just fine. He had a lot of simple lines but was still believable.Sure, the Plot is not completely original and reminds us of other films..Like Mike, Space Jam and others..but it had a lot of good laughs and The acting was good in my opinion..a fun family movie that is definitely Worth watching. Plus Belushi did well. If you like basketball Or even just a good movie for the family to sit back and enjoy, watch it! I really didn't expect to like it because it sounded corny, and honestly, it was corny in parts. A lot of family movies have some corniness so deal with it! Ignore the hate and

see it for yourself 7.5/10 so I rounded up to 8.
