The Knicks awarded a male fan $1,000 in lottery scratchers Saturday (AEDT) for hitting a half-court shot, according to ESPN, which left some surprised — especially after the same shot netted someone $100,000 at a Lakers home game last week.
“Lmaoooo this is the most knicks prize ever,” tweeted comedian Desus Nice, as social media onlookers piled on. “My god”
In the past, the Knicks have offered a $10,000 prize for hitting half-court shots, including at least once last season.
The Knicks lost to the Pelicans, 123-111.
