For any of us that have joked around and tried a half court shot it is a major miracle to even get close to the rim, but for one  guy his luck came through big time.

The prize on the line was a $1,000 dollars which is nothing to sneeze at, but most of these competitions are a car or a super huge amount of money. Either way I would take his $1,000 bucks either way.

Now he didn't exactly sink the ball, but he (spoiler alert)  did get the money anyway...see the video below to see how.
