LeBron James hugtackles fan after fan hits $75,000 half-court hook shot

New, comments

A lucky man hit a half-court hook to win $75,000 in between the third and fourth quarter of Friday night's Pistons-Heat game. He was then mauled by LeBron James.

You don't see fans hitting half-court shots to win a lot of money every day and you certainly don't see arguably the world's greatest athlete running up and hugging/straddling/tackling the lucky shooter.

This was admittedly a pretty cool moment and one of maybe three times in my life I've kind of liked LeBron James just a little bit.

Here it is in GIForm via the dot com:
