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.

    Two things: 1) MJ was not know for his 3pt shooting, only attempting 1.7 per game in his career. 2) should be called "Below Average Joe". I've seen people just chuck it up underhand and make more shots.

    16:20 his foot was on the line. I think Clay should gt the win and Joe should get disqualified for this. Good job Clay, easy win there bud. We will also ignore that Clay stepped on the line about 10 times XD.
