What were this fan's chances of sinking a half-court shot for $75,000?

Only slightly worse than the Detroit Pistons' odds of beating the Miami Heat afterward.

It wasn't just that the shot went in. It's that it looked like the kind of shot that never had a prayer—even more so than your typical half-court heave.

Said guy walked off the court with a pretty nice haul, along with the priceless thrill of having LeBron James share in his disbelief.

It was fantastic watching a superstar like LeBron react to the shot just like a normal fan would have.

Congratulations to Mr. Drysch, and nice form. Apparently the fans in Miami are almost as clutch as the Heat themselves. Even this club's best would need some luck to sink this shot, though.

Or would they?
