With a huge amount of $55,000 up for grabs, a fortunate Los Angeles Lakers fan had the opportunity to attempt a half-court shot. However, things took a very sad turn for him in the end. During the break in the Lakers’ game against the Houston Rockets, a fan named Anthony lined up for the money shot.
Anthony’s attempt wasn’t too bad and he had enough force and at least managed to strike the backboard. However, as soon as he let go of the ball, Anthony began to limp. In addition, he collapsed to the ground, clutching his left leg in what appeared to be an ankle or knee injury.
The event host came over and told Anthony he had a chance to shoot a three-pointer for another shot at cash. But Anthony didn’t even sort of seem to have attempted another shot in his mind. In fact, he could barely walk without help.
