OKC Thunder Fans Are Deadly From Halfcourt

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Many NBA teams include promotions at their home games where fans are invited out of the stands and onto the court to attempt a long shot for a nice prize. To be fair, to come out of the stands and attempt even a free throw without any warm-ups or practice shots is hard enough. Shooting a three-pointer or half-court shot? That’s nearly impossible.

Except, for whatever reason, in Oklahoma City. The thunder have a recurring promotion where a fan is plucked from the stands and given the chance to shoot a halfcourt shot for a $20,000 prize. And since last spring, as For The Win points out, four fans have hit halfcourt shots at games to take home the cash, which is rather incredible rate of success.

The fourth and most recent winner came last night, when another fan connected from half-court, this time swishing the jumper.
