Michael Drysch had the night of his night last night. After hitting a half court shot at the Miami Heat game to win $75,000, Drysch got up close and personal with one of his favorite players: Lebron James.
After hitting the shot, Drysch raises his arm in triumph. His facial expression then changes to a mix of awe and horror as LeBron James came sprinting down the court to tackle the Heat fan in front of 20,000 fans.
Drysch is undoubtedly happy about taking home a $75,000 check but he’ll also be telling the story about how LeBron James hugged him during the middle of a game for the rest ofhis life.
After the game Drysch said:
“Ecstatic. Euphoric. Wonderful … ‘Nice way to meet somebody. I can’t believe it.”
“That was awesome, man … I was excited for him. When he wound up like that, I was like, ‘Oh no, there’s no way.’ And then when I saw it in the air, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s got a chance.’ I was happy to be a part of that.”
James also took to Twitter to compliment his man Michael Drysch.
