There have been articles published and opinions expressed pushing for the NBA to create a 3-on-3 tournament during All-Star Weekend. While, as of now, this doesn’t seem to be part of the league’s plan moving forward, ESPN.com’s Zach Lowe may have come up with something better.
It’s a 3-on-3 Tournament featuring each team’s principal owner, general manager and head coach. While this is completely unrealistic, it is also an entertaining fantasy for NBA-junkies to discuss and debate. On one of Lowe’s recent podcasts, with Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers, the two briefly discussed the impracticable competition.
Predictably, this got us thinking. If this ever were to happen, who would emerge as favorites? Let’s find out…
5. Brooklyn Nets
Between interim head coach Tony Brown and newly hired general manager Sean Marks, the two share 18 seasons of NBA experience. While owner Mikhail Prokhorov does not have any professional talent on the court, the Russian has proven his post-moves in exhibition games. Plus, Prokhorov lifts and does kick boxing.
The trio, while underdogs here, would be the biggest team with Brown at 6-foot-6, Prokhorov at 6-foot-8 and Marks at 6-foot-10.
