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.

  • The shooting coach is dumb, he should’ve helped him with his form and changed it a little bit to a 1motion shot also, he should have told him to stop fading so much

  • I feel like his footings off. His feet are close together and he bends his knees slightly inwards. Don't know if that contributes much though
