LeBron James doesn't appear likely to participate in the new three-on-three basketball event at the Summer Olympics, but he knew who he would choose if he could create an all-time team.
When asked about current players, however, he only responded, "I don't know; I have to think about it."
The International Olympic Committee announced Friday it would add three-on-three basketball to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 for both men's and women's competitions. However, James explained Sunday that he is unlikely to participate in the new event.
"I'm not very good in a three-on-three thing. I'm more of a five-on-five guy," he said in his full comments, via NBA TV:
Still, it would be nice to dream about a potential trio of James, Johnson and Jordan, arguably the three best players in NBA history.
"He has it and it just rubs off," Magic said. "He's just special."
Only in a video game can we see these three great players competing on the same team in all their primes. They would have likely been an unstoppable trio.
