ATLANTA – Norman Bethea came to play on Thursday.
No, he’s not a Hawks player but a lucky fan who made the best shot of the night.
Bethea is one of only two fans to ever make a half-court shot in Phillips Arena, according to the Atlanta Hawks. The last half-court shot was made in the last seven games, too.

Because of his amazing shot, Bethea won $10,000.
When asked what he will do with the hard-earned money, Bethea said he will enjoy Christmas.
And enjoying Christmas he will.
