Miami Heat Fan Hits Half-Court Shot, Plenty of Taxes to Pay

by Noah Glyn

Every kid’s dream is to hit the game-winning home run in the seventh game of the World Series, or to hit the game-winning shot in the seventh game of the NBA Finals. Well . . . those dreams fade fast.

This might be the next best thing: 

Not only did the fan win $75,000, but he also received a mammoth hug from the NBA’s best player. Pretty awesome. 

The only downside? The $22,000 he’s required to pay in taxes. At least he was expecting it, though — after hitting the shot, he was asked what he would do with the money. He answered, “Give the government half.”

The one and only.
