Excitement abounds in basketball's birthplace about the fast-paced 3-on-3 version of the game being added to the Olympic lineup Friday by the International Olympic Committee.

Fans might not want to pencil in LeBron James for the United States' three-on-three team in the next Summer Olympics. Each team will have four players - three starters and one substitute.

It'll be interesting to see what caliber of players do represent the U.S. in 3-on-3.

"Whenever I can put on a USA Basketball jersey".

"The last few years, we have made a major push in 3-on-3 basketball with our nationwide Dew NBA 3X tour and several worldwide 3-on-3 competitions and the Olympic stage will provide these elite athletes with the opportunity to further demonstrate their talents", Tatum said.

"I'm not very good at the three-on-three thing", the Cleveland Cavaliers star said, per Zach Harper of CBS Sports.

"I stay out of the one-on-one matchups during our practice, the two-on-twos and the three-on-threes. So probably not. I probably won't be a part of the three-on-three matchup that it has to offer". "Sure, I'd love to do it, " said Stewart, who won her first Olympic gold medal at the Rio Games.
