OKC Thunder Fan Tackled By Kevin Durant after Hitting Halfcourt Shot (VIDEO)

by March 24, 2013

For the second time this season, a lucky OKC Thunder fan nailed a halfcourt bomb. Kevin Durant, taking a page out of LeBron James‘ PR book, tackled the guy. The Thunder cruised to a 103-83 win over the visiting Portland Trailblazers. More from the Oklahoman: “Thunder fan Justin Dougherty, from Springfield, Missouri, drilled the $20,000 shot during a second half timeout and broke out in a wild celebration. But despite the raucous scene, Dougherty still had his priorities in line. ‘As soon as I hit it, I went to find my girlfriend (first),’ Dougherty told FSN Oklahoma soon after. ‘And then I went to find Kevin Durant.’ […] ‘I said ‘Kevin, come at me,’ Dougherty recalled to FSN. ‘And he came at me and he was totally game for it … I’ve seen the LeBron footage plenty of times and I was watching the game that night when it all popped up and I was telling the guys and I told my girlfriend that I want Russell Westbrook or Kevin Durant to tackle me.'”
