Since alot of action is being stirred up on this forum I have been asked to post an action challenge from Big John aka Strong Arm John. Although this is a not a pool challenge it does involve gambling high! Here it is.......

Big John would like to invite any person in the country to shoot college 3 pointers with a 54 year old man who has never played anything but high school basketball. You can bet anywhere from 5 to 20 thousand and possibly (probably) more. This challenge is open to any living human in the country. Serious inquiries can call Big John at (317) 281-2750.

This will without a doubt get a challenger. I know because I played college b-ball and hit 67 out of 100 against a guy in Atlanta and got throttled for $3500. I will call Josh Arieh and stir this up.

I don't mean to sound pissy its just easy for things to get mixed up.

I happen to consider John a friend and I can say one thing for sure: The guy is good action. I don't know about his free throw skills, but I do know that if he likes something he will send it in. I wish him good luck in his search for an opponent.

76 free throws in a row? He's got a ways to go to get the record:

"After high school Ted moved to Riverdale, California and played for a city league basketball team where Ted started to specialize in free throw shooting and began to break records for consecutive free throws. In 1972, Ted started touring the country doing free throwing exhibitions. This culminated in a record 1,704 free throws in a row during a Phoenix Suns halftime show."

I don't think there is enough time during half time to shoot 1,703 shots, let alone make that many.

His record is actually 5,221:

"St. Martin doesn't include much detail about the most interesting world record he holds - most consecutive free throws (5,221), but does explain his physical regimen (a constant schedule of push-ups) and various other records (most free throws within a consecutive 24-hour time period, 84 consecutive three-pointers in eight minutes) that give readers a general idea of how the records are broken."

Yes, the amazing Woo hit 78 out of 100 against me while at least 20 people including John Hager and Chris Bartrum travelled down I-85 to the Run and Shoot at 2 in the morning to sweat it. I offered to play him one on one for $20,000 but he declined. The kid can shoot though, and play poker. He has made a couple of final tables at the WSOP. After our match was over, I rode back to Mr. Cues with Josh and Woo, lol.

We are talking about 3 pointers not free throws. I shot 91% from the free throw line in college, but only 46% from the 3 point line and led the conference in both.

the fact that it is a thread offering a challenge by a well know POOL player and action junky (Strong Arm John) makes it pool related. It's also worth noting that others involved in the thread discussion, myself included, are either pool players, gamblers or both. And the entire challenge and previous stories stem from the pool hall or patrons of the pool world in general. I get so goddamn tired of people screaming NPR, NPR, like a bunch of little girls. DO NOT READ the threads if they are uninteresting to you. How hard is this?

I get tired of hearing the whole NPR spill as well. I wouldn't mind posting something there if more than 5 people visited it in a day. Why spend the time making a thread if you only get 10 views and no responses because no one views that forum?

And where does it say anything on the Main Forum that only pool related information is allowed? Doesn't say that in the description.

That anybody who comes with a pool player or poker player will probably get some sort of action as well. It may turn into one action fest for a few days, week or more. John wants everybody to know he has more money than he ever has in his life and is ready to do some serious gambling.

No worries. There was no offense taken. When people see the exact term "Action Challenege" well, we have spent a lot of time and money promoting that exact term and it is identified with TAR. You are absolutely correct in that "action" is universal. Just trying to keep things straight.

Hell, I would love to sweat the free throw deal. Matter of fact, tell John to come down to the Qlympics and we will tape the whole thing and put it on the internet. I like John and enjoy when he is around, something always goes off :D

For all who do not know John, he is the real deal. You can get played.

I'd like to watch that match if they actually play for five figures. I've made 23 out of 24 college threes before betting for beers, but there's got to be a million guys out there who would rob me. I've heard stories of people around the Bay Area watching Chris Mullin of the Warriors practice- they've seen him make 70-80 out of 100 3's from pro range.

46% for a season in college is pretty damn good, corvette. Its a hell of a lot harder to make them in a an actual game.

I barely made the high school team. I was the 12th man and was used to break full court presses because of my dribbling ability. My heroes were Marques Haynes and Leon Hillard of the Globetrotters.

I can shoot 3 pointers also, but nothing like the guys on here. 70% is amazing to me. I think 50% is damn good. I have a couple of tricks dribbling the ball that I would love to bet on. Like dribbling closest to the ground for the longest time. I don't think anyone can dribble a basketball one inch from the ground for five minutes. But I can! I might even bet on it. I can also dribble the ball one half inch off the ground for over a minute. Try that some time.

Not sure if you follow the Pacers or not but me thinks Larry has a lot more to worry about than betting on a free throw contest. Like an NBA franchise melting down during his tenure.

Breaking News: Pacer players DID NOT shoot up a strip club tonight. Do not worry though we are sure things will be back to normal tomorrow night. Remeber Friday's are Kevlar night at Club Rio.

Larry and John do spend time in the same city though.....hmmmm..I like John in the all-around..Free Throws, Arm Wrestling, 8 Ball.

Before we started using the term I had never heard it used to describe anything. Tell you what hero, go back through the archives and find where someone used the term " Action Challenge" EXACTLY to describe something before July of this year.

I have no illusions of owning anything. All I am trying to do is keep from having to wade through emails and questions about the Big Arm John "Action Challenge" match and why isn't it going off or where is it happening.

"In 1972, Ted started touring the country doing free throwing exhibitions. This culminated in a record 1,704 free throws in a row during a Phoenix Suns halftime show."

Which, coincidentally, also broke the previous record of 8 hours, 16 minutes, and 34 seconds for the longest halftime show in basketball history. In addition, this feat nearly broke the record for the most boring halftime show in basketball history, but lost out by a narrow margin to a high school halftime show in Platte City, MO headlined by the Platte City Plate Spinners. (no offense intended, should such an organization actually exists :o )

Sorry, I couldn't resist. Seriously, though, how long would it take to throw 1,700 friggin free throws?? Would it be recommended to buy a few treasury bonds before you start so they would mature about the time you finish? Damn.

Big John is putting the guy up. So, you would be gambling with Big John, and shooting against his horse.

I'm like you, I was really thinking this would go off but they backed out at the last minute. It is hard to believe that nobody has stepped up. There has to be some great 3 point shooters. I know that the pros don't have time to jack with it now, but it would be great to see one of them come out and shoot for 20 dimes!!!

I find it hard to believe that Noone can beat this 54 year old man in a 3 point shooting contest.... I mean, Steve Kerr, Reggie Miller, J.J Reddick, and many others would be huge favorites to win..... Getting those guys involved maybe tough... But CMON....

Shooting unguarded 3's is a hell of a lot different then shooting NBA 3's with a hand in your face. I have someone to match-up with John's guy it would of happened this weekend, but my guy had surgery for a detached retina two weeks ago. John and I have been in negiotions for a month and it would of happened for 20 dimes. Steve Kerr, Reggie Miller, and JJ Redick have no shot beating the ringer that I have. Top of the Key college 3's anything less then 85 out of a 100 is a major disapointment. my guy was a ball boy (19-21 years old) for the cavs in the Mark Price era and he used to beat all the Cavs or the other team at 3's and foul shots. He beat Mark Price and mark gave him his shoes. Last time I clocked him he was 92 out of a 100 shooting out of the rack with a 15 minute time limit. He also made over 600 straight foul shots on his own court, and he can't even sniff the foul shot record.

Why would you tout your guy so high? Doesn't make sense. You must walk into pool rooms & state that you never miss a ball (well I saw Louie do that & get action but most don't) Just put the money up & play, unless you don't really want to.

.....and I am glad that I now understand that shooting an uncontested 3 point shot is easier than with someone guarding you. I would have never thought of that.

76 free throws in a row? He's got a ways to go to get the record:

"After high school Ted moved to Riverdale, California and played for a city league basketball team where Ted started to specialize in free throw shooting and began to break records for consecutive free throws. In 1972, Ted started touring the country doing free throwing exhibitions. This culminated in a record 1,704 free throws in a row during a Phoenix Suns halftime show."

(I've hit more than 76 free throws in a row)
my best free throws in a row in 54

have you ever seen an NBA practice? Some of these guys make 9/10
3 pointers left handed when they aren't being guarded....

I saw Gilbert Arenas Make 24/25 NBA range 3 pointers with 1 hand...
I think you are badly mistaken about the shooting quality of those guys...

However I hope that you match happens... All of the woofing is pointless without actually doing something

i agree...save all the BS!!! i want to hear some about this prop actually happening!!!

Why would you tout your guy so high? Doesn't make sense. You must walk into pool rooms & state that you never miss a ball (well I saw Louie do that & get action but most don't) Just put the money up & play, unless you don't really want to.

.....and I am glad that I now understand that shooting an uncontested 3 point shot is easier than with someone guarding you. I would have never thought of that.

He has a detached retina it doesn't matter now. He is out of action for me. I was refraining from being a smart ass about the differance of ungaurded 3's, a lot of people think that the NBA players are the best pure shooters, which is way of base. I had a pure champion shooter to match up with Strong arm's guy and it didn't happen oh well it would have been fun to sweat. I cannot justify putting a guy with a detached retina in action shooting a basketball. It was strickly (hopefully) profitable entertainment for me that I felt we had an edge. My days of betting on anyone besides myself for serious money are long gone.

Shooting unguarded 3's is a hell of a lot different then shooting NBA 3's with a hand in your face. I have someone to match-up with John's guy it would of happened this weekend, but my guy had surgery for a detached retina two weeks ago. John and I have been in negiotions for a month and it would of happened for 20 dimes. Steve Kerr, Reggie Miller, and JJ Redick have no shot beating the ringer that I have. Top of the Key college 3's anything less then 85 out of a 100 is a major disapointment. my guy was a ball boy (19-21 years old) for the cavs in the Mark Price era and he used to beat all the Cavs or the other team at 3's and foul shots. He beat Mark Price and mark gave him his shoes. Last time I clocked him he was 92 out of a 100 shooting out of the rack with a 15 minute time limit. He also made over 600 straight foul shots on his own court, and he can't even sniff the foul shot record.

I'm glad you let us know how great of a shooter you had. You could of got down in 10 to 12 weeks, probably unlikely now if he is gonna make 92 out of 100. Although you can get a proposition bet in 10 to 12 weeks if he wants to shoot at a number. It is an amazing thing to see somebody conquer such an unbelievable feat. As a matter of fact, you got action in "10 to 12" weeks and he can shoot at 88.

If anybody finds a shooter to shoot John's guy, they can get a 5% freeroll. As high as the bet will be it should be worth it.

If you can tell me the shooters name and the spec of the matchup Strong Arm wants to propose, I can probably get him some action. Will this supposed gentleman shoot NBA 3's or just college? Free throws?

PM me if you want.
