Kevin Durant Bear Hugs A Fan That Hits a Half-Court Shot (Video)

In late January, Miami Heat MVP LeBron James startled a visiting Heat fan by bear-hugging him after he sank a half-court shot between quarters. Illinois computer technician Michael Drysch had just won $75,000 for himself and $75,000 (via the Carmex company) for James' beloved Boys and Girls Club of America, and even in the middle of a dull blowout Heat win over the Detroit Pistons, a good time was had by all.

Even while having an MVP-level season that would win the award in most other years, Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant is still a distant second in the MVP race to LeBron. With his Thunder swooning a bit as the Heat ascend out East, Durant decided to mix things up a little on Sunday, just as James did two months ago. Justin Dougherty tossed in a half-courter during OKC's blowout win over Portland on Sunday, and Durant decided to join the pile.


Nicely done, Justin. He'll win $20,000 and a brief run of internet stardom as a result, not to mention the bear hugs from his girlfriend Sydney Friar, and some tall dude named Kevin Durant.
