NEW ORLEANS (3x3) – Three Olympic gold medallists and some of the best 3x3 players in the world will join forces for a 3x3 exhibition game during the NBA All Star Weekend in New Orleans on 17-19 February.

Ten of the best 3x3 players in the US, who competed in the DewNBA3X Tour in 2016 – including all 4 members of Team NBA NY Harlem who played at the FIBA 3x3 All Stars - were selected to appear on a TV show.

They will compete for a spot on the two teams who will play a 3x3 exhibition game on Thursday 16 February (televised on Saturday 18 February).

1996 Atlanta Olympics gold medallist, former NBA superstar and now TV analyst Shaquille O’Neal and former team-mate Dennis Scott were cast to scout the players.

The six best will join their two captains, former NBA stars Jason 'White Chocolate' Williams and Baron Davis to form the two teams.

2012 London Olympics gold medallist Russell Westbrook and 2016 Rio Olympics gold medallist Kyrie Irving will be the two teams’ General Managers.
