The Dream Team of James, Magic, Jordan might never take the court together, but with the Big3 League tipping off later this year, it's possible that former stars like Allen Iverson and Kenyon Martin make a run to represent the United States in global 3-on-3 competition. The games will also be played in the half court with a 12 second shot clock and teams having to clear the ball above the arc before each possession.
Alas, we'll never see these guys together - at least not in the Olympics. In the same press conference, he said that he probably wouldn't participate in the tournament, but he feels it is "great for basketball".
"I think it's great for basketball", James is quoted by ESPN. I haven't seen the full layout of how they plan on executing it ... are they going to use National Basketball Association guys, are they going to use college guys. "I'm not quite sure".
"Found out some more information on the 3-on-3 event in the Olympics", Patrick said on his radio show. The most recent listing at consignment store Flight Club has the sneakers priced at $5,000, while a size 11.5 pair is available from StockX for the same price.
"I stay out of the one-on-one matchups during our practice, the two-on-twos and the three-on-threes".

Ils ont respectivement engendré 54.000 (+0,5%) et 13.100 (+0,2%) postes, hors intérim, de janvier à mars 2017. Sur un an, l'emploi salarié a augmenté de 284.100 postes (+1,2%), pour atteindre 24,93 millions de personnes.
"If Bron can come back from this (being down 0-3) I might put him in the "best ever" discussion, real talk".
The short-sided format was added to the Olympic schedule last week, along with mixed relay races on the track and in the pool and BMX Freestyle. There will be eight men's teams and eight women's teams competing.
It is not clear if the rule Patrick is referring to is for the U.S. Olympic team alone or if that is an IOC rule.
"They don't want just the basketball powers to compete in 3-on-3", said USA Basketball CEO Jim Tooley. "They will definitely want to reward countries that have been doing a lot of 3-on-3 activities". 3-on-3 has been on the rise, with the Dew NBA 3x tour and Ice Cube's BIG3 league serving as platforms to grow the sport.
It's uncertain whether National Basketball Association players are even eligible to play in the event.
Draymond Green is one those players, and said one reason he is in a favor of it is because "guys can win that are not pro athletes".
