Default All-Star Weekend Event Idea: Rep Your State 3v3 Tournament

I was debating with my friend earlier today about which state produces the best basketball talent (I'm from Illinois and hes from New York) and the idea came to me since All Star Weekend is coming up it would be cool to have a 3 on 3 single elimination tournament where players from certain states go in and represent their state against other teams representing their own states.

For example,


The Illinois team would consist of:
Anthony Davis/Dwyane Wade/Derrick Rose
(Andre Iguodala,Iman Shumpert,Tony Allen, and Pat Beverly could fill in)



New York Team:
Joakim Noah/Carmelo Anthony/Kemba Walker
(Lance Stephenson,Danny Green,Andre Drummond,Taj Gibson could fill in)



Georgia Team:
Dwight Howard/Josh Smith/Toney Douglas
(Jodie Meeks could take Douglas place)




Texas Team:
LaMarcus Aldridge/Chris Bosh/Jimmy Butler
(Wes Matthews,DeAndre Jordan,or Mike Dunleavy could fill in)



Pennsylvania Team:
Michael-Kidd Gilchrist/Dion Waiters/Kyle Lowry
(Tyreke Evans,DeJuan Blair,Jameer Nelson,Morris Twins could fill in. Kobe is injured)



North Carolina Team:
Hassan Whiteside/John Wall/Chris Paul



Ohio Team:
Jared Sullinger/LeBron James/Steph Curry
(Kevin Martin can fill in if LeBron decided to bich out)


Maryland Team:
Kevin Durant/Rudy Gay/Ty Lawson



And then California comes in and shits on everyone else because its such a huge state, so it would probably have to be split up in to 2 teams so here we go.


Cali 1:
Kevin Love/DeMar DeRozan/Russell Westbrook




Cali 2:
Tyson Chandler/Klay Thompson/James Harden

(Paul George and Brandon Jennings injured, and Damian Lillard is butthurt so he won't be participating this year, so that leaves on the reserves for both Cali teams to pick from: Paul Pierce,Andre Miller,Brook Lopez,Jeremy Lin,Jrue Holiday and Kawhi)


Australia Team:
Andrew Bogut/Dante Exum/Kyrie Irving
(Patty Mills Reserve)


Spain
Team:
Marc Gasol/Pau Gasol/Ricky Rubio


Games would take place in a half court setting, 6 minute games, single elimination. Playground rules so don't expect to see Harden at the free throw line.


Thoughts on this idea? Which team would you choose to win the tournament?

I'd rather it be birth state rather than college state. Cali becomes unbeatable smallball (Klay/Goatbrook/Harden).

Otherwise great idea and I support it. More interesting than all events but the main game and 3 point shootout to be honest.

It is birth state lol, thats whats scary about Cali.

Although I feel Ohio or even Illinois could take out a small ball lineup with Klay Westbrook and Harden.

Some of the guys from Washington include: Jamal Crawford,Nate Robinson,Zach LaVine,Tony Wroten,Avery Bradley,Isaiah Thomas,Spencer Hawes,Aaron Brooks, and Martell Webster.

May be true but this is all an example, you know? I guess if the NBA really were to do this players would choose where they actually want to play for.

I do feel Kevin Love would opt to play on a stacked Cali team over playing with Terrence Ross and Ronnie Brewer.
