A Miami Heat fan won $75,000 during the break in between the third and fourth quarters of Friday night’s game at American Airlines Arena by sinking an incredibly lucky half-court hook shot.

The unbelievable shot excited the crowd, and LeBron James loved the shot so much that he ran out to half court and tackled him to the ground with a giant hug.

The fan didn’t seem to mind the takedown at all and, as one broadcaster put it, he “probably enjoyed the hug from LeBron more than the money”.

UPDATED: The fan has been identified as Michael Drysch, a 50-year-old computer technician, who was flown in from Illinois after being selected from a drawing for a chance to win the prize from the LeBron James Family Foundation. No wonder LeBron was so excited.
