Shootin' The Breeze With Max Hooper



The purpose of Shootin' the Breeze is for me to share my unique basketball experiences and perspectives while also sharing those of my guests. My entire senior season at Oakland University I did not attempt one 2 point field goal and I took a whole lot of 3s 257 of them as a matter of fact. I have always prided myself in being a great shooter and Shootin' the Breeze gives me a platform to discuss shooting with my guests. I hope to give my listeners insight into the minds of various people I have met along my basketball journey during different stages.
