There have been discussions about possibly making three-on-three a possible Olympic sport. Yes, adding a game that we play on driveways and playgrounds could be an Olympic sport.
I feel that it doesn’t really showcase the top notch basketball ever. There are no three-on-three leagues, so how do we determine who are the best three players to make a team?
That’s like adding H-O-R-S-E and Knockout as Olympic sports too. These games are fun to play, but that’s not the sport of basketball. It’s not the five-on-five, what the professionals play.
But it is something to consider in a way. If swimming can have 10 different medal races, then basketball should feature at least more than one. Maybe a three-point contest?
