Olympics Considering Three-On-Three In 2016
The Olympics are considering three-on-three at the 2016 Olympics.
FIBA wants to create a comprehensive ranking system that would determine the best three-on-three teams in the world.
"Like volleyball has beach volleyball, swimming has synchronized swimming, we want three-on-three to be part of it," Secretary-general Patrick Baumann said.
Baumann reasoned that three-on-three would allow more countries to experience the Olympics and help FIBA expand basketball's global popularity.
