A fan missed the shot of a lifetime during halftime of the Atlanta Hawks’ Friday night game against the Utah Jazz. Shooting the “money shot” from half-court for $1,000, Kevin (the Hawks fan) somehow landed the ball on the back edge of the rim, defying the laws of physics and becoming somewhat of a YouTube sensation. The video of his incredible shot currently has nearly 170,000 views.
“The ball was obviously a bit deflated from NBA standards; either that, or our man Kevin managed an against-all-odds dead-on corner wedge between the rim and the backboard,” Yahoo! Sports blogger Jay Busbee writes.
