Can I make it into in the NBL

Hoggy is the name, shooting 3's is my game.

I haven't got the hops or athleticism of some but I have been experimenting and realised I am a gun from 3 point land. I don't have bball experience but there has got to be a spot maybe somewhere in Australia or NZ even.

Most professionals only shoot .400 or so even stephen curry can't be hitting much over 50%

I'm aiming to be a 3 pointer specalist.

probably, but you'd have to buy a ticket to the game and sit amongst the rest of us peasants.

Seriously though, I have met a couple of NBL coaches and if you can give me your current 3 point% I will do my very best to try and get you looked at.

Can't see why there wouldn't be a place in Australasia for another 3 point gun...

Kickert only hits 47% of his treys and he is considered a great three point shooter, I would just be stationed on the three point line and take out a defender. No I can't play D but neither can james harden LOL.

What is your height, age and weight?

Post a youtube clip of yourself making 3s in your backyard. A lot of coaches in Australia and NZ check this forum so you will likely be seen.

Well, your 3 point% appears vastly superior to your presumed IQ there Hoggy ol' mate, that's a great start.

Not sure how much demand there is in the three-and-no-D category

I imagine any 3 and no D players would be better suited to the WNBL

Hoggy- Do you shoot at the big ring or the U10 ring?
Any idea what size ball you use for shooting?

re: Can I make it into in the NBL

I can generally make 30 from 30 from inside the paint, which is a better FG% than most centres currently playing NBL. The % does drop slightly when there is defence though.

re: Can I make it into in the NBL

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? Hoggytime are you saying you hit 80% of 3s on an empty court? if so that is NOTHING. Nik Stauskas drains 3s in warmup like some shooting robot he CANNOT hit them with defence and the crowd yelling. what you do in practice is NOT mean you can shoot 80% in a game.

If you can hoot 80% in a game then yes you can play NBL and even NBA and I will acknowledge you as the BEST shooter the game has ever known.

But it is WAY too small a sample size. 30 shots come on man. Try 3000 to see where you are at.

Can't wait for that tape Hoggy. One of the funnier threads I have read. The fact you are pursuing this in a partially serious way makes it so much more enjoyable too.

re: Can I make it into in the NBL

At 36ers training , I saw average NBL shooters , e.g.
Carter , Herbert, Chappelle , Teys etc shoot 30 odd threepointers before missing one , and Ng 50.
Of the 30 odd and the 50 , one touched the ring on it's way in.

Work exclusively on 3 point shots and I guarantee you go nowhere. There is another 98% of the game you have ignored fool

re: Can I make it into in the NBL

Hoggy clearly has either skills or a sense of humour and therefore is not Clint. Hoggy to my knowledge also didn't recently get his heart broken and then cry about it all over facebook for the last 2 months. Plus if Hoggy was Clint, all those half priced DJ gigs would not leave him nearly enough time to have his perimeter jumpshot dropping so sweetly. So all the above evidence makes me think it's 2 very different people.

If you are wannabe desperate to be in the NBL just apply for one of those NBL match day manager positions going around.
