Phoenix Suns fan hits half court shot for $77,777, celebrates with team


Remember when that Miami Heat fan hit a big shot for a price at half time and LeBron James tackled him. Well now the Phoenix Sun have their own version of that story.

Suns fan Tim Boven hit a halfcourt shot during the second quarter of their game against the New York Knicks to win $77,777. After winning and running around high-fiving fans, he made his way back to half court. That is when he was greeted by the Suns’ team who celebrated with him including doing the time honored jumping in the air and bumping into one another.

Still, it is cool to see NBA players get excited about fans nailing shots during breaks of play for large sums of money.
