Say this for Oklahoma City Thunder fans: they’re on fire.
For the second time this week, another fan hit a half-court shot and took home $20,000. Oh, and he got to meet Jay Z and Beyonce.
Brad Brucker, a 33-year-old volleyball and soccer coach at Piedmont High School, was roaming the Oklahoma City arena with his wife in quest of a halftime hot dog when a Thunder rep invited him to try a half-court shot. He swished the money-maker in the Thunder’s victory over the Los Angeles Clippers … two days after Cameron Rodriguez did the same thing in the Thunder’s victory over Denver.
“I need to go shake the hot dog lady’s hand for not having hot dogs ready,” he joked (via NewsOK.com’s Anthony Slater).
He wasn’t short on chutzpah, either. He headed for Jay Z, whose budding sports agency reps Kevin Durant, and his wife, Beyonce. “I asked him if he wanted to be my agent,” Brucker said. “He just laughed. I guess I’m a little short, but whatever.”
Thunder fans are 5-for-22 (22.7 percent) on half-court shots since March 5.
