Lakers Fan Seemed to Suffer an Unfortunate Injury While Attempting $55,000 Half-Court Shot
Every fan dreams of being the one to make a half-court shot at a NBA game. But that dream quickly turned into nightmare for one Lakers fan, who appeared to injure his lower leg on an ill-fated attempt at glory during Sunday night’s matchup between the Lakers and Rockets.
The fan was shooting as part of a promotion that could send him home with $55,000. It wasn’t a bad attempt, missing just to the left of the rim. But as he attempted to stop his momentum from the run-up, he fell to the ground and immediately grabbed at his lower leg. He then struggled to get up, missing out on the rest of the contest, which also involved a three-point shot.
