I saw a video clip recently of a basketball fan hitting a half court shot to win $77,777.00 at a Phoenix Suns game.
So it made me think. If I had the opportunity to shoot a free throw to win money or a shot from half court to win more money, what would the dollar amount have to be to make me shoot from half court?
When I used to shoot frequently my free throw percentage was around 75%. Now (after barely touching a basketball for 5 years) I would guess it would be close to 50%. I’m not sure what my half court percentage would be, but I’m sure it would be very low. Even when I was playing frequently I didn’t hit many of those. Adding in the three point line would make it even more interesting. . .
