  • In case you hadn't heard, 3-on-3 basketball could be a thing at the 2016 Rio Games, so SB Nation figured it'd be fun to have each of its NBA team blogs pick their own 3-on-3 teams. As you can imagine, this gives teams with a Big Three like the Heat and Thunder a distinct advantage, but it also makes it more interesting for teams like the Wizards, who have no obvious set of three players that stand above the rest. Thomas put together our team over here at BF, and I think it's hard to argue that his threesome gives the Wiz the best possible combination of offense (scoring, passing, shooting) and defense (post, perimeter, rebounding), but so far you all have opted for a different three-man squad.
