Fans get to shoot halfcourt shots all the time. Whether for money, a car, free tickets to a future game or some other prize, the halfcourt shot is a longstanding tradition during breaks in action at NBA games.
In the long history of halfcourt shots, however, the one taken Friday during the Hawks-Jazz game might be the most unusual ever.
Taking the unfortunately titled “Money Shot,” a season ticket-holder reared back for a Matt Ryan-style football pass that lofted toward the rim and — plunk! — came to rest on the back of the rim. Honestly, it was more impressive than actually hitting a halfcourt shot.
