Can an Average Guy Beat NBA Star Joe Harris in a 3-Point Contest? | Above Average Joe | GQ Sports


GQ Staff Writer Clay Skipper played some high school basketball, but 3-pointers were never really his forte. Brooklyn Nets star Joe Harris, on the other hand, is the reigning 3-point champion of the NBA and it really can't be overstated how amazingly good of a shooter he is. So, naturally we wondered if Clay, our Above Average Joe, could beat this NBA sharpshooter in a 3-point contest. Seems reasonable, right?
Starring: Clay Skipper, Joe Harris, Etienne Brower, Ray Salnave.

    It looks like he is jumping forward but hes also fading back at the same time. His release doesnt look to bad. It's his mechanics on his timing and jumping.

    I think people are doing it wrong by jumping.. the whole point of jumping is to clear the defender when they come in but pros have tuned their calves and other things to balance it out but if you are a novice, if you include the jump w/ no defender and just doing it to 3-point, imo you are doing it wrong. All that coaching only to land 1 or 2 balls in time?
