Introducing Max Hooper, a 6’’6 200lbs sharpshooter from California. Back in high school, Max played for multiple elite programmes. Spending his first three years at Valley Christian High, before later attending Mater Dei and Brewster Academy for his senior and postgraduate year. With Mater Dei, he shot 49.5 percent from the three-point line, smashing the school record, and by the end of his high school years, he was a 4-time all-state selection. In his postgrad year at Brewster Academy, he averaged 10 ppg on a team stacked with NCAA d-1 and even some NBA talent. Regardless, he was lightly recruited and ended up at Harvard, which had as much to do with his excellent academic record, as it did his skills on the basketball court. However, as a freshman, Max played just 4 minutes in the entire season and took just one shot, which you guessed it, happened to be a three-pointer. He later spent a season with St. John's in the Big East, averaging just over 3 points in 9 minutes per game. Still making a three-pointer an outing at a 40.3% clip. Through the season, he took 65 total field goals, 62 of those came from behind the three-point line. Max transferred to Oakland, a mid-major d-1 program in the Horizon League. For his final two seasons at the collegiate level, he showed no signs of expanding his role. As a junior, he averaged 6 ppg in limited playing time, and of his 167 shots on the season, 159 were three-pointers. But it wasn’t until his senior season with Oakland in 2015-16, when Max did the seemingly impossible, by going an entire year exclusively shooting three-pointers. Something he did whilst being one of his team's top scorers. He averaged 11 ppg, and made 3.3 treys on 7.3 attempts per game, shooting 117-of-257 on the season. Hooper ranked among the top players in the nation in total three-pointers and became the first d-1 player since 2010 to just shoot 3-pointers through an entire season, with minimum 50 attempts. He did it while still being highly productive for his team, earning conference Sixth Man of the Year honors. With that, all considered, you’d have thought he was only shooting three’s on purpose. But he swears that his feat was entirely unintentional, the reasoning being he was instructed to only take such shots by his coach. Who believed because of Hooper’s lack of athletism, spacing the floor made him much more than near the rim. That season, the team almost entirely depended on its 5'9" star point guard Kay Felder, a second-round NBA draft pick, who averaged 25 points and 9 assists on the year. His usage rate was off the charts and his presence drew attention away from Max. Who was left spotting up in the corner, knocking down open looks from drive and kicks? He was near perfect from the free throw line his senior year also, making 25 of 26 attempts. An insane 96%.
One of his best moments came during a win over Detroit. After knocking down a three, Max rushed to the stands and greets his dad chip, who to his surprise was in attendance, despite battling with cancer. He’s since passed, Since leaving college, Max hasn't seen much success at the professional level. After going undrafted, He spent his first two seasons removed from Oakland in the G league with the Westchester Knicks, But only played a couple minutes, all of his shot attempts were, as you might expect, three-pointers. He’s played 3 games in his G-League career, averaging 1.5 points. Most recently he played for the Niagara river lions in Canada, where he averaged 4 ppg, again 79 of his 83 shots were threes. The past two years, Max has had stints in the summer league. Last year he was apart of the Wizard’s roster, however never made way onto the court. This year Hooper joined Hooper the mascot, as apart of the Pistons Summer League team, who worked him out back in 2017. While Max game as a whole is very average, he claims to be the best shooter in the entire country. Something that might not be as far fetched as people make it out to be, this is a one-dimensional player. Who can do nothing besides shoot, and still almost made the NBA. For years he’s studied the NBA's best shooters, trying to identify what has allowed them to remain in the league

    Reminds me of Sloan Seymour at Siena. He’s a 6’9” player whose typical line is 9 points on 3 of 7, all from beyond the arc. If he hits 4 of 7 it’s a good game. If he hits 2 of 7 it’s a bad game. One day he had a great game and hit 5 of 7. But he also had a bad game where he hit 1 of 7. Anyway, what he’ll attempt is fairly predictable.

  • RyanMonkeyFace

    Why are people hating on him, you realize you have to be fast to do a fast break right? The snippet of his lateral drills looked like his side to side movement is slow as well...if he kills it from the perimeter it is better to use him as a trail man to knock down 3s. He could be the ULTIMATE role player haha

    People: Ben Simmons only drives in and never shoots! Max: **reverse card**

  • redspin2ify

    The thing is being a sharpshooter isn't enough, in the nba you're guarded at the 3 point line most of the time, especially if people know you can shoot, so he really needs to have some ridiculous range to be even considered for the nba purely just for shooting. He hasn't shown to have mid range even if he does. He doesn't drive to the hoop even if he can. He hasn't shown defensive or playmaking ability, even if he does have those abilities. I love curry and think he's one of the best players to ever play the game, but he's going to spawn a whole generation of aspiring players who only practice treys and think they'll be set to join the nba. It's a prime reason why a player like simmons, who has an everything-but situation, is seemingly way more valuable than a one-trick pony. This guy may be a good bench player for a lower side, but has to work on much more if he hopes to make it for real in the nba.

    • redspin2ify

      @ken pinoy yes and that's completely fine, nothing wrong with it. I'm just saying that a player can't expect to be able to make 3s and end up in the nba. That's the issue, the over importance of 3s vs all other fundamentals recently

    • ken pinoy
      ken pinoy

      You're might be right at some point. But who knows? The thing is passion. He can be a super human in 3points shooting.

    • DLKnightstick1989

      @redspin2ify Again, there is no argument, because we're in agreement. So what are you arguing against exactly?

    • RapTor

    Rumor has it that he once did a 3pt reverse dunk.

  • some oyag
    some oyag

    No defense can't be the only issue. I also suspect he can't create for himself and his ball handling is shaky. Guard is the worst position to have such deficiencies. I also suspect he gets intimidated on the court easily. That may be his biggest problem.

  • Mars

    I can (sort it) accept the fact he shot 3’s for an entire season. But how is this possible playing a full court game. Being a perimeter player he had to had several fast break opportunities per game. Did he just stroll along, did he pass the ball right before an open layup.

  • Andrew Teague
    Andrew Teague

    I believe if he ever makes it to the NBA level he will have a career like Gordon Hayward, but just a little worse, not the most athletic player, not the best defensive player, but can shoot the ball from three and probably the mid range.
