Default Could You Score in an NBA Game?

Just wondering how many ISH posters believe they could enter an NBA game and, at some point, score a basket from the field? Bragging permitted, but let's keep it real. This is a legitimate search. Who could score?

I dont post much on here but I dont think it would'nt be hard to score if you have any sort of an outside jump shot. Im sure I could sit in the corner, wait for someone to penetrate and draw my man and get an open look. Im a decent shooter, played all my life Im sure id knock down 3/10 if given space in the corner.

You probably weak as fvck and easy to guard why would any player foul you? Unless you built like KD you might get looked the wrong way and get some freethrows

Anyone with decent jumper would be able to sooner or later, threads like this are stupid.

Or if you're reffed like Lebron James you can crab-dribble your way to the hoop for an easy two.

I dunno if people understand what it's like having someone 6'7" with a 7' wing span run at you to close out with tens of thousands of people watching you.

It'd be embarrassing. There are a lot of D-Leaguers who would have trouble scoring in an NBA game, mainly shooters.

Of course. If some amateur entered the game players would probably give him Rajon Rondo treatment and leave him wide open and guard other 4 players.

If you're wide open you're going to make one.

So which one gives away more free points. A crab dribble for an easy two or 42 freethrows in 2 nights

I've always been a good long range shooter. So if one of my teammates gets double teamed and I'm left open for a shot, there is a possibility I could knock down a shot. That being said, there is also a strong chance I'd get shut down.

So we gonna act like Lebron has never shot 20+ freethrows in a game?

It doesn't have to be just a shooting foul. It could be a technical free throw or an intentional foul that leads to free throws.

This. An open look on the NBA is considered a contested shot anywhere else
