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.

Looks like someone read how the perfect shot has too look like and tried to copy that. So much wasted movement and late release for a volume shot competition.

I’m so confused, you played basketball in high school? I played golf.... And I can make 25% of those shots without playing in 10 years Appreciate the honesty aspect though , refreshing

The secondhand embarrassment of watching him miss all of those threes in front of an NBA 3 point champ was tangible.

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.

I'm not a basketball expert but I think the way he jumps is pretty far off. He needs to jump straight up instead of jumping forward. Some of that is probably just because of the lack of arm power.

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
