After an Oklahoma City Thunder fan connected on a half-court shot to win $20,000 last night, he was congratulated by one of the most famous couples in all of pop culture – Jay Z and Beyoncé.
Brad Buckner drilled the money-making shot after a stop in play on Thursday Night’s Oklahoma City Thunder/Los Angeles Clippers game and was congratulated by Jay and Bey as he exited the court. The couple stood and applauded Buckner as he walked into the locker room. The moment was captured on video by TNT who were broadcasting the game that night.
It seems as if good fortune is in the air this week in Oklahoma City as Buckner’s shot was the second $20,000 half-court nailed by a fan at the Thunder’s Chesapeake Energy Arena this week.
