    Hey, if they can have 3-meter and 10-meter diving AND sychronized diving; tons of swimming events plus synchronized swimming; gymnastics AND rhythmic gymnastics; wrestling AND greco-roman wrestling; THREE types of equestrian and FOUR types of cycling, why can't we have two types of a sport that most people care about?
    Not too mention we've all grown up playing 3 on 3, their are 3 on 3 tournys all over the world already. This just legitimizes something should have already been legitimate a long time ago. 3 on 3 is already a little bit different type of basketball that has been around forever. I'd like to see the best compete at it.

    I can't imagine any of the top NBA players competing in 3 v 3 and 5 v5 in the same Olympics. I just think it's stupid. 3 v 3 basketball is fine, but you know why you play 3 v3 basketball? Because you don't have enough people to play 5 v 5. Has anyone in the world ever had 10 people standing around and not played 5 v 5?

    sometimes I'd rather play 3 on 3.

    The reason you always go 5 is because it's much more common to have an easy 3 vs 3 than having 10 people standing around.
