Sunday will go down as a great day in the life of Springfield, Miss. Justin Doughtery.
First, Doughtery decided to celebrate his birthday by watching the Oklahoma City Thunder play host to the Portland Trail Blazers. Next, he nailed a halfcourt shot during a timeout in the third quarter to pocket $20,000.
Finally, he received a massive hug/tackle from Thunder superstar Kevin Durant while celebrating his magnificent shot and new found wealth.
I believe this birthday is going to be hard to top in future years.
Durant's mauling of a fan is similar to the display put on by LeBron James recently. He also tackled a fan after a halfcourt shot. Could this become a trend around the league?
