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.

    Bruh his release area is above his head. If you calculate it, of course less shots will fall because of the wasted energy. Average joe shouldve lowered his shooting positioning cuz his form is too advanced for him

    He’s jumping too high and that takes his legs out of it. I shoot pretty well, and if you pay attention to any of the best shooters, they barely get off the ground when they shoot 3s. Ironically, not jumping high allows you to get more of your legs into the shot.
