Basketball Player Congratulates Fan For Making $75,000 Shot

See the moment a basketball fan wins big for his phenomenal throw!

When fifty-year-old Michael Drysch, a computer technician from Illinois, tried his luck at the half-court hook shot he didn't expect to be walking away with a life-changing $75,000.

However, it isn't just the money that he'll be taking away from the day.

After taking the shot, a stunned Drysch preceded to be tackled to the ground in an incredible hug by basketball super-pro LeBron James.

'I turned around after I made that shot and had him come and congratulate me with a big bear hug,' Drysch told Miami Magazine. 'It was a great time.'
