A Lakers fan just made a half-court shot and won $100,000.
A Knicks fan just made a half-court shot and won $1,000. Of scratch-off lottery tickets.
Anthony Peterson, via Rob Perez of The Action Network:
RP: What was your reaction when you found out the prize was $1,000 worth of lottery scratchers?
AP: Well, when they said scratch-offs I instantly got a headache because I was going to have to scratch them all off. I thought about who I could hire to do it for me, but then figured they might want some of the money, so I negated that idea. I was sort of like, “What the f*ck man? Some dude just won $100,000 doing the same [s—] in L.A. and I get some bum ass lottery tickets.” Still a blessing though.
RP: How much did you end up winning?
RP: Do you feel like you have carpal tunnel in your wrist after you were done?
AP: Hahahaha. Yes. I had to scratch in shifts because my wrists were throbbing and I had card dust all over my hands and home.
But giving a fan scratchers as a prize? That’s SO New York.
