The NBA season is still very young but half-court shot contestants appear to be in mid-season form already.
After a Thunder fan hit a shot to win $20,000 over the weekend, a Lakers fan managed to one-up him and drill one for a cool $35,000 payout. He only had one chance to drain the bucket, and he took full advantage with a clutch performance.
When hitting a shot for that much cash, nobody could blame you for absolutely freaking out and losing your mind in celebration. That’s probably the way most people would handle it. Not this guy, though. After nailing the shot, he played it cool by letting the arm hang before tapping his vein to let us know there’s ice water in there.
Even Lakers players were impressed enough to show this dude some love.
