Here's something you don't see everyday: a fan actually hit the halfcourt shot during a basketball game. And it was a hook shot. Check it out.

You know how NBA teams offer halfcourt shots for a bunch of money and never expect the fans to actually hit the shots? Well, this guy at the Miami Heat vs. Detroit Pistons game hit the shot. And he did it by shooting a hook shot.

What does he get for his troubles? $75,000 and a big hug from LeBron James. Not a bad way to spend a Friday night.

Lebron jumped him like that was his buddy. :thumb:

Lzen 01-25-2013 08:52 PM

Very cool. LeBron is a good guy.

The sponsor(s) of the contest will say that, just prior to the shot, he walked with the ball...so based on that technicality, he's not getting the money.

LeBron looked seriously hyped for him. I now love LeBron James.

Looked like his foot touched the line. Should have been waived off.

The sponsor just purchases an insurance policy in the contests. The insurance company would be who would fight it.

PunkinDrublic 01-25-2013 09:07 PM

That will buy him a lot of highlights and Ed Hardy shirts.

Two years ago someone hit the half court shot on consecutive Sunday Night games in OKC. Hasn't happened since. Crazy it happened two weeks in a row. They only give away a messily 20k though :)

LeBron is a good guy though. He's had his maturity issues, but who wouldn't with his talent?

unnecessary drama 01-25-2013 09:22 PM

LeBron has always been incredibly easy for me to cheer for...as opposed to Kobe, who I think is a little bitch. I'll never get over the way he acted during that Phoenix series way back when when he tanked game 7 to show everyone how great and important he was.
