Should be an interesting event to follow.

LeBron/Melo/Kobe should be an interesting trio.

Lots of Good Basketball players who can't make it in the NBA (5 on 5 basketball, season long) would do wonders in a streetball 3 on 3 game!

would love to see this in the Olympics!

Winner's outs? 21 by 1s and 2s? Three point check back line? Check backs on steals? Check backs on airballs? Win by 2? Win by 2 or straight to 27?

And generally speaking yeah, NBA players would dominate this, but you are right in that there are specifically really good players who lack the single skill of getting up and down the court, or the skill of playing an 82 game season 5 months, who could be surprisingly valuable. The right big man, who just doesn't get up and down the floor well, could be unusually valuable, like a guy like a healthy Yao.

It's not in yet, they're looking at it. Fun be fun though, I agree.

Jamal Crawford, Lebron James, Dwight Howard.

I know there's better players, but I would be fun watching Crawford operate with so much space around him, he'd humiliate opponents.

I have change my mind, Kyrie Irving would be really fun too see in this he is already breaking ankles in the NBA.

That great but i would like Melo, Lebron and Wade better. Melo and lebron already score at will, add another crazy scrorer/defender/shot blocker just for complete domination


But such a format would be so unfair. they should make a world vs america series

Current Jordan, Kobe, Lebron would be dominant. Only halfcourt as Jordan won't be able to keep up, but in a halfcourt game, he still has the skills to use his post up game, and have the stamina to hang in on defense without all the running.

I doubt any NBA players would participate. It would be college and D-League players only.

Can you have any substitutes here?

Here are the major rules they used at the 2010 Youth Olympics in Singapore (where Three-a-side half-court basketball successfully debuted, according to the OPs article):
  • Only half of the basketball court is used for the game.
  • Each team consists of 3 players and 1 substitute.
  • Game time: Two 5-minute periods or a team scores 33 points or more, whichever comes first. If tied at the end of regulation, 2-minute overtimes are used until the tie is broken or a team reaches 33 points.
  • Team must attempt a shot for goal in 10 seconds.
  • Ball must be taken out of the 3-point line and touched by 2 teammates (ball receiver/dribbler and 1 other teammate) before a shot can be attempted.

EDIT: here is USAs team, which came in 4th.

10 second shot clock? lol thats freaking awesome. thats a crazy fast-paced game.

And it looks like there is some kind of rule where you have to clear the ball back to the three point line. I hope its a check back on every possession. including steals and airballs.
