Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

This happened between the third and fourth quarters of last night's Lakers-Thunder game, and it's one of the best fan-makes-half-court-shot videos of the year. The fact that Heath Kufahl's perfectly executed shot is followed by everyone on the court freaking out jumping around to a Blur song makes the moment plenty sweet, but this bit of backstory from The Oklahoman makes it that much better:

It's always cool to see someone make that shot, but for the Kufahls and their seven children, it means a bit more: Heath's wife, Jenni, was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in October of 2012. The money will be used for mounting medical bills.


So yeah, we're really happy that he made that shot.
