ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Just the other day we checked in with the Oklahoma City Thunder, where during each home game a fan is taken from the crowd and given one chance to make a halfcourt shot worth $20,000. And while this is supposed to be a novelty, a celebration of futility, these fans in OKC somehow keep making halfcourt shots.
During last night’s game against the Clippers, a fan came from the stands and made a halfcourt shot. That’s the second time this week, and the fifth make in the last 22 attempts. And as it turns out, this fan almost missed his chance entirely: He and his wife were on the search for some hot dogs, but when one stand wasn’t quite ready, they went a different direction and he was selected by the Thunder to try the shot.
His reward for the make? Twenty thousand bucks, as well as a handshake from Jay-Z. Not a bad night at the game…
