3-On-3 Basketball Coming To Olympics?

By 04.09.13

Ever want to watch LeBron, Kobe and KD knuckling up against the best that the rest of the world has to offer? The kind of match-ups previously reserved for special modes in 2K might soon be coming to an Olympic stage. Per ESPN:

“3-on-3 basketball and BMX freestyle are trying to join the Olympics… Three-a-side half-court basketball successfully debuted at the 2010 Youth Olympics in Singapore, and the International Cycling Union proposes adding street-style BMX and a mountain bike eliminator, which is a sprint race involving four riders.”

I think I speak for every hoop head out there when I say: make this sh*t a reality, oh wise and powerful IOC. Not like an American squad would really lose to another country (try as China and Spain might), but a tournament with multiple squads from multiple countries? That’s must-watch television.
