Annika Hutsler, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, was captured on the Jumbotron performing the stunt, which earned her a $100 gift card. The footage also made the rounds on social media. However, the Lakers went on to lose to the Indiana Pacers 115-116.
Hutsler enlisted in the Marines in 2017 and medically retired in January 2020. Her right leg was amputated in April 2019 after multiple procedures due to a tumor in her foot.
Since being named “fan of the game,” Hutsler has gotten a new prosthetic leg. Hutsler had her previous leg for over a year and hadn’t been fitted for a new one since.
