PLAYERS: Gerald Green
TEAMS: Phoenix Suns
Making a half-court basketball shot is awesome, and it’s especially awesome when making a half-court shot wins you a lot of money. A Phoenix Suns fan was lucky/skilled enough to experience that on Friday night  during the second quarter of the Suns-Knicks game at US Airways Center, as he drilled a half-court shot to win $77,777.
