I'm assuming he's talking about his club team. The team I play for has 3 teams for each age group, one in A, one in AA, and another in quad-A. The try-outs are all at the same time(about 50-60 people tryout, sometimes even more) and the top 12 players are on Team A, next 12 on team B, next 12 on Team C. Or he could be talking about his school team, maybe it's also split up.

i messed up my knee during tryouts (guy came down on it and just twisted it kinda funky - was out of commission for a few months) so i wound up not making my HS team...but i still played with a handful of the "A" HS guys in 3v3 5v5 and 21 games for a few years and hung with them pretty damn well...then it was all just friends and only a couple of them were really as good....but during that time i was practicing with about 3-400 shots per day with a minimum 50% (FT was 75% with a few hundred as well)....so i'd say you're doin well...keep it up and you should get a spot....

it depends on a few things ur confidence in ur form ur time and avalibilty. when i began shootin i did it on a gradual scale and when i got in the hundreds about 200 at 11 250 by 12 and now that im a teen i do 300 on everday during school a quarter of em moving half standing and a quarter 3s if im not satisfied i do 50 free throws and start over at the whole amount or portion. on weekends and summers 400 a day. same formula. Keep it up for a week and ull see results but be sure to not change ur form too often and if possible have a stand set up a video recorder have u take shots with ur forms and see which one suits u the best

I'm not sure how many shots I take, but I do have a fixed shooting workout that I do whenever I can get to the gym/play at an empty outside court. First I take 30-50 warm-up shots whilst moving back after every completed shot to get my form going and develop some range. After this I take free throws until I get to plus30, which usually takes about 40-50 shots. Next I play a few games of this game my coach taught us called "you vs MJ" where you have to get 11 points to win. You get 1 points for a made shot, and MJ gets two for a missed shot. Usually I play three games and take about 50 more shots. Finally, I play a game where you have to get to 50 points in the least amount of shots. 3 points for a 3, 2 points for a shot outside the key, 1 point for a shot in the key, and -2 for any shot missed, that's usually another 30-40 shots. So that's 150-180 shots overall, plus however many I take in a pick-up game. Usually I can do this in 30-45 minutes, and my form has really improved along with my range, so I'd say its working.
