Heath Kufahl reveals money will be spent on his wife’s cancer treatment.
We’ve seen NBA fans take to the court during the half-time interval and hit a half-court shot for money on numerous occasions.
But on Tuesday night during the Oklahoma City Thunder’s game with the Los Angeles Lakers, it was perhaps a more poignant outcome than ever before.
Heath Kufahl took to the court between the third and fourth quarters and made the half-court shot before running around in a celebratory frenzy.
It was only later revealed that he and his seven children would be using the winnings to help with his wife’s cancer treatment.
The media also reported after the game that Kufahl is in actual fact a Lakers fan but had to wear the OKC jersey to take the shot.
However, considering the cause to which the money is going to, it is unlikely any Thunder fans will begrudge him his success.
