VIDEO: Heat fan hits $75,000 halfcourt shot, LeBron tackles him

By Royce Young | NBA writer

The reward for hitting a halfcourt shot for $75,000 (other than the $75,000)? Being tackled by 6-foot-8, 270-pound LeBron James.

The fan, Michael Drysch, went with a skyhook -- for some reason -- but evidently he knew exactly what he was doing as he completely drained it. Actually, I'm not even sure I'd label that a hook shot. It was more of a grenade toss.

Via ESPN.com, here are Drysch's comments on it:

“It's a great way to meet somebody like that,” Drysch said, as he was presented the oversized check. “I had no idea he was coming over to me like that. That was amazing. What a great feeling to experience something like this.”

“They told me to put some spin on the ball, and get it up there as high as I could,” Drysch said. “I had made that shot something like 1 percent of the time in my life.”

Still, it went in, and it was awesome. So much that LeBron freaked out with the guy. Even the Pistons bench was celebrating. What a fun moment.
