NBA Star Jamal Murray Apologises for Instagram Sex Tape

The NBA season is on full lockdown and basketball stars are finding new and interesting ways to keep themselves entertained. Lebron James is posting dance videos with his family, Giannis Antetokounmpo is testing out his guitar skills and Steph Curry is proving once and for all that he is a freak of nature. But sadly for Denver Nuggets’ point guard Jamal Murray, the social distancing period has been far more social than he would like. The 23-year-old has been forced to apologise to fans after an x-rated video of him and girlfriend Harper Hempel was aired on Instagram to his more than 464,000 followers.

According to Jamal Murray, the post was the result of a hacked account. He took to Twitter to apologise for the incident, revealing he was currently working on the situation.

For Murray, who was having a career-best year before the season was postponed,  averaging 18.8 points and 4.8 assists per night, the scandal comes at a terrible time. NBA fans are hungry for news, trades, and announcements now that games are off the table, and sadly, Jamal Murray and his girlfriend’s private life has become basketball’s biggest story. In fact, Hempel, who has been in a relationship with Murray since they attended college together at Kentucky, has gone on to delete her Instagram in the wake of the scandal.

It’s a sad situation if Jamal Murray’s claims of a hack are true, but if it was an unintentional slip, he wouldn’t be the first NBA player to make that mistake. Back in 2016, Golden State Warriors All-Star Draymond Green famously posted a photo of his penis to his public Snapchat profile. Green also claimed he was hacked, but common sense suggests he may have just hit the ‘add to story’ button on a risky pic by accident, proving that even our most esteemed athletes are human after all.

Shooters shoot.
