The most exciting moment of the 22 point victory the Miami Heat had over the Pistons was watching LeBron James tackle one extremely lucky fan named Michael Drysch who won $75k for making a half court hook shot at half-time. Also lucky for the fan, the money is coming from LeBron’s organization and not Kroger supermarket.
Earlier this month, a guy hit a half court shot for $10k but then Kroger didn’t want to pay him because they said his foot went past the line. Controversy started, a movement was formed and Kroger paid up.

Most of these half time shots are for $10k or less or a new car worth half of what this fan won but if you think $75k is a lot, check out this Lakers fan (it’s from 2010) that hit a half-court shot for $235,000!
