I was on vacation in Miami last year and went to a Heat game where a guy hit a halfcourt shot for $75k. The arena went absolutely nuts. LeBron ran off the bench and tackle-hugged the guy. It was amazing.

Technically, the Suns organization didn't pay this.  Any big money contest is insured.

Love the story. Seems like a humble, unassuming nice guy who deserved it (as opposed to a cocky arrogant asshole). Thanks, subby.

Yeah no money to the church, buy coke and hookers instead, that's a better investment.

Or give it to a homeless charity, better than to some church.

We know. ESPN gargled LeBrons balls about it for weeks.

[FOLLOWUP] Remember that Suns fan who won $77,777 for a half-court shot last week? Well, the Suns aren't paying because reasons.

Exactly. Right now it's all about LeBron granting a dying kids wish. Too bad the kids wish wasn't for him to retire.

7's the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 dwarves. 7, man, that's the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin' on a branch, eatin' lots of sunflowers on my uncle's ranch.

True, because anyone who knows how the Suns owner is knows that he'd rather eat shiat than give away $77k to some peon, the cheap ass mofo.

good math there, subs.
 
2014-03-30 07:04:24 PM
I remember when the half court shot would be for $500k or even $1m.  Not necessarily with the Suns, but in other places.  Too many times, these fans have hit it, I guess.

The Suns won't pay this - the insurance company for these events will.

Not always, given that by definition insurance is always more expensive in the long term than just running the contest and paying it out yourself. Small companies will tend to go with insurance when they run such competitions, larger organizations that run such contests will tend to just pay them out themselves, especially if the prizes are relatively small like in this case.
