|LeBron James Bear Hugs Fan (VIDEO)|
Almost every single NBA game a fan is given the opprtunity to win some sort of prize by heaving a half-court shot at some stage of the game - it's rare that it actually goes in however, and it's even more rare that an NBA superstar would break free of the coach's huddle to come celebrate with the fan.
That's exactly what happened last night during the Heat's game against the Pistons. Fan Michael Drysch won $75,000 by making a half-court hook shot, James burst ont the court and grabbed Drysch in a bear hug before the duo fell to the ground in celebration. In addition to the fan taking home the prize money as part of the promo he also earned $75,000 for LeBron's foundation, according to Brian Windhorst.
Afterwards LeBron explained why he was so ecstatic.
"That was awesome, man," James said. "I was excited for him. When he wound up like that, I was like, 'Oh no, there's no way.' And then when I saw it in the air, I was like, 'Oh, that's got a chance.' I was happy to be a part of that."
