  • 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.

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.


Yeah, that's a good rule up there. So the ball not only has to be checked back, but when it is it's got to passed to someone after that, so no just grabbing a rebound and kicking it out for a three at that point.

I feel like there should be multiple USA teams for 3v3, kind of like how there are multiple US swimmers and track athletes. I think the US 3 man team would be too good, and wouldn't have any competition. With two US teams, that would be fun to watch.

The US team would beyond
dominate,they would murder the opposition like Wilt did

Cp3,Durant,LeBron
played at half court and 10 sec clock
disgustingly brutal for the other teams

A team of CP3/Westbrook/Curry and LeBeon/Durant/Melo with Wade/Bosh/Blake any of these combinations on a half court at 10 sec clock

Extermination

I really like this idea. It'd open up a whole new aspects of the game. It would be interesting to see if some of the players' weakness would be exposed. Of course expect a lot of overreaction if that were to happen.

Going out on a limb here, but I think LeBron wouldn't be as effective in a short-handed half court game.

Put Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes on a team anchored by an American NBA player and they would dominate those European scrubs

So they take away wrestling, pretty much killing the sport outside of the WWE shenanigans. In turn they add a basketball spin-off that nobody will care about. Good move IOC .

At least add that weird football-volleyball hybrid with the acrobatic kicks. That's something that could garner some interest.

Cool, maybe eventually they can take some of the crappy NBA rules and take it to 3v3, and restore the NBA to real basketball. Casual fans can watch 3v3 and basketball fans watch the NBA, everybody wins.

10 seconds for a shot and two teammates have to touch the ball before shooting. talk about fast pace. expect some low quality shooting to occur in this event.

I think they are, but regardless no club is going to take the risk and let them play in a competition no one gives a shit about.
