Don’t appreciate LeBron’s appreciation of the game of basketball? Watch this.
Check out LBJ’s reaction after Michael Drysch drained a half-court shot worth $75,000 after the third quarter of Friday’s Heat-Pistons game.
LeBron James loves basketball. He just freakin’ loves it.
ESPN has more on Drysch and LeBron:
Drysch said he had been practicing the shot the past two days and only made it once during his workouts. He received a tip from a friend in the arena tunnel as he was warming up to take the shot. “They told me to put some spin on the ball, and get it up there as high as I could,” Drysch said. “I had made that shot something like 1 percent of the time in my life.” James spent several moments on the court congratulating Drysch before he returned to the Heat’s huddle to prepare for the start of the fourth quarter.
