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

Born in the Chicago area and lived there for a good while so I guess Rose/Wade/AD for me.

I could see NJ being solid...Kyrie Irving, David West, JR Smith. Swap out JR for Kenneth Faried if he's chucking too much, but the talent is there. If only Bynum was healthy and not retarded...Kyrie, Faried, and 2012 Bynum would be sick.

I feel like JR Smith would be a beast in a 3v3 half court setting. Theres so much more space to work with and Faried would be great on the offensive boards picking up JR Smith's misses.

I guess there would need to be standards.

It's either birthplace (which sort of rules people like Steve Nash out forever), or where they spent most of their life (elementary, jr high, high), or where they went to college (that would give North Carolina too huge of an advantage... so no to that).

Anyway, I'm all for either of the first two. If number one I have to side with my birthplace (Oregon), if number two then I'm in California for the Championship Cruise.

Players would probably be given a choice to choose between birth team or where they went to high school. Def. not colleges.

So far though i feel like the current rosters would be accurate.

Yeah, dude is an excellent shooter..the spacing is helpful enough, but with Kyrie being such a nasty iso scorer it's so much deadlier. He gets clowned a lot and deservedly so, but in a less restrictive setting his shot creating ability would be pretty damn valuable. Not to mention he can defend when he needs to.

One day they're finally gonna get all the hyped up 1v1 players like KD, Melo, Harden, Bron, etc to do it...and then someone completely unexpected like Boris Diaw is gonna show up and dismantle all of them.

Cali 2

James Harden, Klay Thompson, Tyson Chandler A pure shooter, a playmaker and whistle chaser, add to that Tyson Chandler with his defensive presence.

Well its only 3 guys on a team for a 6 minute game, and states in the US are just as big as countries. Spain is about the size of Texas.

And you can't tell me

Noah/Melo/Walker vs Gasol/Gasol/Rubio

Wouldn't be a good game to watch in a half court setting?
