With some long-range shots and a Shaq-aided slam, the SagerStrong Foundation has received a $500,000 donation.
Following a tribute to Craig Sager after the three-point contest, TNT broadcaster Ernie Johnson came onto the court with champion Eric Gordon and finalists Kyrie Irving and Kemba Walker. Johnson said $10,000 would be donated to the charity for each shot they made in a minute.
TNT analyst Reggie Miller, one of the great three-point shooters in NBA history, said he wanted to get involved, bringing onto the court All-Stars James Harden and DeMar DeRozan, WNBA champion Candace Parker and actors, including Anthony Anderson and Michael B. Jordan.
Combined, they came up with 13 makes for $130,000, and Johnson offered to raise it to $500,000 if two-time MVP Stephen Curry could make a half-court shot. Curry missed his attempts, but Shaquille O'Neal hoisted Sager's youngest son, Ryan, up so he could dunk to earn the total.
