LeBron says he'd want Magic, Jordan as his 3-on-3 teammates

Though somebody would probably get mad if he said he needs the offseason to rest, most would understand if he just admitted he wanted to manage his workload closely. He is no stranger to the Olympics, as he has played in several of the US basketball teams, carrying them to the gold.

LeBron James told reporters Sunday he's more of a "5-on-5" guy, but said the addition was great for basketball. London, UK. 12th August 2012. This summer a new 3-on-3 league, BIG3, is launching with a series of former stars, including Allen Iverson, Chauncey Billups and Jermaine O'Neal, slated to be among the players.

"I think it's great for basketball", said James, per ESPN. It's quite possible National Basketball Association players won't be involved.

As LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors gear up for game 5 in Oakland on Monday night, National Basketball Association fans were treated to a 30-minute barbershop conversation that showed a different side to the uber competitive set. For now, we can only dream of what a team comprised of Michael, Magic and LeBron would be able to do on a basketball court. I haven't seen the full layout of how they plan on executing it and are they going to use National Basketball Association guys are they going to use college guys. I'm not quite sure. I'm not very good in a 3-on-3 thing, I'm more of a 5-on-5 guy. "I stay out of the one-on-one matchups during our practice, the 2-on-2s and the 3-on-3s".

A 3-on-3 team of LeBron, Jordan and Magic is downright scary right now, let alone when all three players were in their primes.

James isn't the only player unenthusiastic about the new Olympic event.

Draymond Green is one those players, and said one reason he is in a favor of it is because "guys can win that are not pro athletes".
