KD’s going to be in a movie. All we know is it’s a Warner Bros. joint, Durant is in it and it’s going to have a basketball subplot. It’s supposed to start production in September in either OKC or Baton Rouge.
At this point we don’t have any information as to what the movie will be about. Judging by the above picture, I think we all can agree KD would be a pretty solid Clark Kent or maybe Malcolm X. But right now, it’s all up in the air. It could be anything from a 10th Air Bud movie to Space Jam 2 to a feature length version of “Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper”. (Is that two “Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper” jokes in the last month? I need new material.)
Since we don’t know yet, I figured it was a good idea to exercise the creative power of the DT nation to see what some of you’ve got. Trey Kerby of The Basketball Jones had a few, but let’s see what you fine people came up with. Consider everything sic’d.
DJ 7: A group of brothers are basketball players for their high school. The oldest (KD), the middle, and the youngest. KD is the humble one, the middle the cocky one, and the youngest the innocent one. they live in a rough neighborhood, and work a job, and manage to find a way to fit in practice with work/school. Their mother is a full time working waitress, and their grandmother stays with them. Sometimes they bet money on their school games. Its Senior year for KD, and Junior for his middle brother (the main character), unfortunately the middle brother hangs out with the wrong crews.
One day after messing a game, the middle brother is told that he is suspended for the next five games, he gets into a fight with KD, and takes off. He does something stupid, and later that night the younger brother out on a date ends up being shot down, and left paralyze. KD furious goes out for revenge but the middle brother ends up talking him out of it. The shooters are arrested, and the boys focused on school/basketball. They join a city tournament in which college scouts will be.
Their two rival schools consist of another poor school, and a rich private school have a similar group of kids joining the street tourney. They Win the tournament, and KD around the end of the year gets college offers. The middle brother finds a pretty girl, and starts going to church. But at the end the grandmother passes on from illness and that’s33s also where the movie starts(shes like the wise person who told them whats right and wrong) , at the funeral slow melodic music that kinda gives you hope inside starts to play, and the title of the movie then screens. THE END
TaoMaas: The Hangover 3: a group of friends travel to Beaumont, TX to participate in a charity basketball game…
squintessential: “A kid who stinks at basketball gets an opportunity to shoot a half court shot during a (possibly Thunder) game. The kid misses but KD signs a ball for him that magically transfers Durant’s court skills to the kid. The little guy becomes an unstoppable force with KD’s powers but this little bit of magic is ruining KD’s game. In the end, the kid decides to give the ball back and go back to practicing.”
Josh: Durant quits basketball out of frustation from a 3rd finals appearance and the third time he missed the last shot taking a 35 ft fadeaway 3 while being triple teamed. He’s pissed at his coach (Brott Scooks) and his friend/teammate (Wessell Russbrook).
He retreats to rural Oklahoma to be alone. The locals who are wary at first, befriend him and teach him how to noodle. Through the magic and therapeutic power of noodling the locals help him to find himself and the reason why he loved the game. KD also teaches the locals not to be such rednecks. The alternative ending of the movie has Durant being unselfish and passing the ball to a 2nd string point guard (Maric Eaynor) who then clears everyone out and airballs the last shot of the finals. Done and done. Print it, and the kid stays in the picture.
Jax Raging Bile Duct: Norman Bird arrives in the rural Oklahoma town of Dickory Dock to be a high school teacher and basketball coach. He had lost a previous coaching position after striking a student, so is under pressure to succeed. Like much of the state, Dickory Dock’s community is passionate about basketball.
