I think 3-on-3 would actually give some other countries a chance to win something (not gold, of course, that's ours). Lots of countries have 3 NBA (caliber) players, but not enough quality guys to have a full size roster that can actually challenge the typical medal teams.

I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Half court? Call your own fouls and don't be a whiny little bitch about it? All buckets count one? Make it, take it? Play to 11? Gotta win by 2?

Those better be the rules

Would LeBron go to the Olympics again? He brushed them off last year.

Durant can hit the trey. Melo is a great shooter from 2-range, and Kawhi is a beast defensively and can score at will.

Melo is a decent shooter, far from great. I will stick with the best shooter on the planet.

serious question - how does someone decide who the teams are?

I mean, are they gonna just let Coach K (or whoever) assign 3 players to each team?

I didn't think in terms of who would actually be willing when I put LeBron in there. But if he's out of the equation, I'd still go with someone other than Melo or Steph. I want all 3 guys to D up.

KD and Kawhi are obvious choices. For the third spot, with no LeBron, I'd probably go with (in order):

Paul George
Klay Thompson
Jimmy Butler

Melo is awesome when it comes to the Olympics. Dude's a champ in that aspect.

George, no way in my mind. I have never seen him come through when it mattered. I'd go with Butler.

When the game gets close, PG could just let KD and Kawhi take all the shots (they're both money) and just focus on D. But now that you mention it, I might move him to the bottom of the list I just posted. I'd rather have Klay than Butler because I think they're about equal defensively and Klay doesn't need the ball in his hands as much on offense.

All your questions answered here by yahoo.

https://sports.yahoo.com/3-3-basketball-olympics-five-questions-answered-154711839.html


ine. How does it work?

Each game is 10 minutes long, no halftime, no break, no time-outs. The shot clock is 12 seconds, so no four-quarters garbage here. Oh, and the game is half-court. In other words: no transition offense, no wasted time, nowhere to hide.

KD - primary scorer

It will be fun to watch, but not as fun as the Olympic Home Run Derby. I think Giancarlo Stanton is a shoo in for the Gold.

I get the ratings angle, but 3-on-3 is not basketball, and shouldn't be played as an Olympic sport. I mean, changing the rules of a sport doesn't mean it qualifies for the Olympics.
