LeBron James Tackles Heat Fan Who Hits $75K Shot (VIDEO)

‘I had made that shot something like 1 percent of the time in my life.’

Michael Drysch, a 50-year-old computer technician, put up the most awkward shot you could possibly imagine from half-court. But he made it. And LeBron could not contain his excitement and ran over to congratulate the surprised winner. He walked away with $75,000 and big hug from the reigning MVP. Even the Pistons bench was celebrating. What a fun moment.

    Awesome, really nice to see a guy who is a millionaire get excited for an average working man(I assume) who won a pretty nice chunk of money.

    LeBron continues to up his image and distance “the decision.” He also has Dwight to thank for that lol.

    I bet the whole state of Ohio hopes for this kind of embrace when the 2014 free angency season person comes up.

    What disgruntled Cavs fan came on here and voted all these comments down?

  • The Mauve Avenger

    Imagine if LeBron injured himself during that somehow.

    Or Buls fan or Laker fan.

    “$75K winner sues LeBron James for back injury“… I can see it happen…

    See, my good folks and brethren, this is one of many reasons why he is… THE KING.
    Expressing genuine joy AND happiness for the mere gentile. And his accomplishment.

    You know that was unfortunately the first thing I thought of when I saw it? That’s sad.

    Great Moment! But Lebron was also happy because I heard that shot also won money for Lebron’s charity, but dont quote me on that im not 100% sure…
