You have to love this guy’s rather unorthodox technique in making a $75,000 half court throw during one of the Miami Heat games. What is even cooler is the reaction and hug from LeBron James. Computer technician Michael Drysch won the money as part of a promotion by lip balm brand Carmex and the LeBron James Family Foundation. He won the $75,000 for himself but also $75,000 for the Boys & Girls Club of America.
This is one of those “can’t get better than this” days for most guys with the exception of coach Erik Spoelstra saying that he wants you to immediate become a starting forward on the team (the basketball version of the “Drysch, will you pull my sleigh tonight” moment).
Now here is the foul: The throw will cost him 25% in taxes or roughly $22,000. He will win therefore $56,250.
