Rules, year[edit]

Which year did FIBA first publish official FIBA 3x3 rules  ? Setenzatsu (talk) 16:59, 8 May 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I don't see how you score. Shouldn't that be included? It is a big departure from regular basketball, where shooting from inside of the arc at 50% and 33% outside results in a tie if one team does one and the other the opposite with 2 and 3 point field goals. This is 1 inside and 2 outside in the Olympics, which means 3 point longshots are favored for double points, instead of 50% more. And free throws at 1 point are double the value of regular basketball. Msjayhawk (talk) 02:06, 8 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Claim about 3x3 being largest urban team sport in the world[edit]

The claim is made that "3x3 is the largest urban team sport in the world". How is largest being defined? Is it by the number of players who play? How do we count "playing"? Is it only officially 3x3 if its an organized game? Are we talking about pick-up basketball generally? How is it measured?

Spokane and Nike 3ON3?[edit]

Should we add a new section or add information to an existing section talking about Spokane Hoopfest and Nike Basketball 3ON3 Tournament? MasterMatt12(Talk to me :D) 22:21, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quote NPOV?[edit]

Should we remove this quote from the text in the Development section saying, "The 3x3 concept has all the elements and skills required for basketball, it has inspired and will continue to inspire many great players in the future. At the same time, it is the easiest and one of the most-effective ways to bring youngsters to basketball, keep them and promote our game. Finally FIBA 3x3 can and will promote key educational and social values to the next generations." I don't know what Wikipedia's policy on NPOV in quotes, but this could possibly be one of the reason why a template for it being written like an advertisement.
