Kevin Durant’s not the only one who can put the ball in the hoop. Fan Heath Kufahl hit a perfect halfcourt shot during the Lakers-Thunder game Tuesday to take home $20,000, which the Oklahoman learned will be used to pay for his wife’s cancer treatments.
Heath’s wife, Jenni, was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in October of 2012. The money will be used for mounting medical bills.
Also, it turns out Heath, who was wearing a Thunder jersey, is actually a Lakers fan:
Guy who hit halfcourt shot to win $20k says: “I’m actually a Lakers fan. Don’t tell anybody. I had to wear a Thunder shirt.”
