Like volleyball has beach volleyball, swimming has synchronized swimming, we want three-on-three to be part of it," FIBA Secretary-general Patrick Baumann told USA Today.

thoughts? i'm not a huge fan, but i think a trio like lebron, melo and durant would be unstoppable. maybe throw dwight in if the US needed a big man.

If they had 3vs3 basketball in this olympics


LETTUCE BE REALITY...Miami Heat would've represented USA

Ray-Lebron-Bosh

Brb ray takes care of the 3s, bosh gets the mid range shots and lebron drives it to the hoop




basketball players should get the opportunity to medal pad like other sports
should add 3 point contest/skills contest also
Lol I was thinking how come they don't have a
3pt contest in the olympics..might be cool

This would actually be more competitive.

3 on 3 basketball would be something different for a lot of NBA players.

This. If it were like swimming there would be 1v1, 3v3, 5v5, half court make it take it , dunk, free throw, three point, half court heave, skills contest, pig, horse, lightning, and a combination event of all the skill-based events rolled into one.

Why is lebrons name still being brought up in 2016 Olympic discussion? Same with cp3 wade Dwight etc. They'll all be too old

This is stupid. You can't compare this to beach volleyball because BVB is already a sport, with leagues and governing bodies..

Should be compared to something like 6v6 soccer... something that CAN be played, but isn't an existing sport.
