Thought this was an interesting story of mutual interest becuase everyone has see this kind of sideshow at an NBA game....just not like this:


ORLANDO, FLA.–The Magic pulled the cruellest of April Fool's Day pranks on an unsuspecting victim last night. The blindfolded fan heaved a half-court shot that he thought was worth $100,000 (U.S.), and the crowd, in on the gag, went wild in the moments after he let it go. Convinced he'd swished the improbable shot and won the cash, the victim celebrated wildly. "I actually just got laid off from work," he said, "but we're going on a trip." When the rug was pulled, he did not look pleased.

In the comments section of the article posted it says the guy was an actor. The joke was more on the fans.
