Video: LeBron James Gives Fan Bear Hug After Made Halfcourt Shot

lebronjamesfanThis was so cool to see.

A fan in Miami during an intermission of a Pistons/Heat game was chosen to shoot a halfcourt shot that’s worth $75,000. This fan put up a wild hook shot from halfcourt. And it went in. I’m sure nobody in the building could believe it. I sure as hell couldn’t believe it.

Then an even cooler moment happened. LeBron James was so excited for the fan that he gave him a bear hug that sent them both to the floor. It was so cool to see LeBron excited like that. The fan probably liked the LeBron hug more than the $75,000. I mean, a LeBron hug is fantastic but I’d still rather have $75,000, if you ask me.

But what a cool moment for the fan. Definitely a moment he will remember for the rest of his life. And I’m still wondering how he made that shot with a fling like that. Unbelievable.

Apparently, it gave the building more energy as the Heat went on to blow the Pistons out, 110-88.
