Just because you are one of the main faces of the NBA, doesn't mean you are immune from social media hacking.
The Thunder's Kevin Durant found that out the hard way after his Instagram account was hacked by a mysterious person with the username of "mr whitehat" at the Twitter handle of @liey_nyc.

Gervin was a nine-time All-Star and averaged 25.1 points for his career, including getting 32.3 for the 1981...

So, okay.1) Kevin Durant made a movie about a magic basketball that causes him to swap talents with an uncoordinated high school student named Brian. It is called Thunderstruck, and it is currently playing a few times a week on HBO.
