AC is helping bring fast-paced action to the gym…
Welcome to 3BA, where hoops meets NASCAR
The idea is faster action, so each team has three players, the court is shorter, and the shot clock is 18 seconds

A.C. Green worried that one of his players might “pop a lung” on the court. David Lucas said he might be “dead tired” before halftime.
The two were talking about participating in tonight’s 3BA 3-on-3 professional basketball exhibition game at the Rose Garden.
The rules differ from those in an NBA game. The 3BA court is smaller than the regulation NBA court, and teams will have less time to shoot. The rules are designed to increase the pace, force teams to shoot quickly and score more.
