This is the LeBron James we knew before he became a “villain” for choosing to join the Miami Heat. Per most NBA games, a fan was pulled out the crowd to take a shot between periods of the Miami Heat’s home game against the Detroit Pistons. In this instance, it was part of a contest sponsored by LeBron James’ foundation. What happened next is hard to believe.
Fifty-year-old computer technician Michael Drysch from McHenry, Ill., grabbed the ball, cocked back and put in a sky hook shot that would make Kareem Abdul Jabbar blush from halfcourt to win $75,000. The shot had barely set in before James jumped the fan and celebrated with him on the court of AmericanAirlines Arena.

“Nice way to meet somebody,” Drysch said. “I can’t believe it.” James became a fan of the fan. “When he wound up I was like, ‘Oh no, there’s no way,’” James said. “When it dropped, that was awesome. I would have probably air-balled that one in that situation.”
