NBA Raises $500,000 For SagerStrong Foundation
After the 3-Point Contest on Saturday night, TNT's Ernie Johnson took the mic at center court and spoke about the late Craig Sager's legacy alongside Kemba Walker, Kyrie Irving and Eric Gordon who helped kick off an incredible "Sager Shootout" to raise money for the SagerStrong Foundation.
The three finalists had a minute to sink as many 3s as possible, each one worth $10,000 for the Foundation. But that was just the beginning.
Reggie Miller soon stepped up and invited others like DJ Khaled, James Harden, DeMar DeRozan and Candace Parker to help the cause. They raised $130K and still, there was more.
Steph Curry was called upon to hit a half court shot to bring the total from $130,000 to $500,000 and although he bricked shot after shot, Shaq ultimately came to the rescue to help reach the $500K goal.
All things considered, it was the most memorable moment of the 2017 All-Star weekend.
