FIBA launches 3on3 test phase

FIBA is delivering on its commitment to develop 3on3 basketball as a new discipline, with the announcement of a test phase of an amended rules set, that will last from mid-May until the end of 2011.

During this period, a number of 3on3 tournaments will be held, during which the new rules and a unified digital competition management system will be put to the test.

These tests are intended to result in a format of play that delivers on the promise to make basketball accessible to the largest possible number of players, taking into account both top level competition, small scale tournaments and simple pick-up games.

The new test rules include three major changes to those played at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games:

 • the shot clock is raised from 10 to 12 seconds
 • shots from beyond the arc count for two (2) points, shots from inside for one (1) point
 • the winning score limit before end of regular time is brought down to 21

Click here for the latest version of the 3on3 rules and here for a table outlining the regulation changes and the lighter versions of 3on3 basketball, or visit

The FIBA Central Board gave its approval for the launch on 13 March 2011 in Lyon. FIBA member federations and potential tournament organisers have been informed of this test period, and have been encouraged to stage 3on3 tournaments throughout the summer. In the autumn, FIBA will eva feedback from all stakeholders, and use the data to finalise the roadmap for the development of the discipline, which has Olympic ambitions.

2012 will then see the official launch of 3on3 on a worldwide basis, with a full pyramid of tournaments being rolled out, ranging from informal competitions to international championships, to a possible world pro tour.
3on3 is set to make a second Youth Olympic Games appearance in Nanjing in 2014.

FIBA Secretary General and IOC Member Patrick Baumann said: "We are excited to get this project launched with a crucial test phase. 3on3 has an extraordinarily large number of non-licensed players. We want this test phase to help us give everyone the structures and rules to play the game and we are confident that we are on the right track."


About FIBA and 3on3 basketball

FIBA ( - the world governing body for basketball - is an independent association formed by 213 National Basketball Federations throughout the world. FIBA is recognised as the sole competent authority in basketball by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Visit and or for further information.

3on3 basketball is inspired by several forms of streetball played worldwide.
This exciting format, sanctioned by FIBA, sees two teams of three players face off on a standard half-court, with rules designed to encourage players to showcase their skills and athleticism. It was played successfully for the first time in international competition at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in Singapore.

FIBA World Championship:
American Academy of Audiology Salutes FIBA ban on Vuvuzelas

This summer, FIBA banned the infamous, noise-making vuvuzelas horns that came under criticism at the World Cup in South Africa.

Not only was the sound never-ending, but extremely loud.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, the vuvuzelas were measured at a decibel level of 131. That means the horns can cause permanent hearing damage in closed basketball arenas.

The American Academy of Audiology is applauding the FIBA decision to ban the vuvuzelas.

The Academy says that noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) can result from prolonged exposure to loud noises over 85 decibels.

Of the 36 million Americans that have hearing loss, NIHL is the cause of 33% of the cases.

In a statement issued by the Academy to be used by its member audiologists during October, which was National Audiology Awareness Month and National Protect Your Hearing Month, the Academy explained that NIHL is caused by damage to the hair cells that are found in the inner ear.

Hair cells are small sensory cells that convert the sounds we hear (sound energy) into electrical signals that travel to the brain.

Once damaged, those hair cells cannot grow back, causing permanent hearing loss.

Brees raises awareness

The issue of NIHL was highlighted immediately after the New Orleans Saints’ Super Bowl win over Indianapolis earlier this year.

The MVP of the game, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, lifted his one-year-old son Baylen up in the air in celebration and the boy was seen wearing a set of noise-reducing earphones.

“Children are exposed to high noise levels more than ever before,” said Kris English, the president of the American Academy of Audiology.

“Noise-induced hearing loss is permanent and 100% preventable.

“Brees’ leadership in hearing protection helped bring that message home.”

The Academy has cautioned spectators to wear hearing protection if it gets too loud.

And you know it’s too loud at a game if you need to shout to be heard by yourself and people around you, if your ears ring during or after the event or you experience a decrease in your hearing, or you have a feeling of fullness in your ears before or after the event.

Euroleague Champs Barcelona and the NBA Champs Los Angeles Lakers:
The World Supremacy Fight ?

In 10 days, I'll be in beautiful Barcelona – lucky me! – to commentate a friendly match that symbolises a sort of duel for world club supremacy and bragging rights between the Euroleague champs Barcelona and the NBA champs Los Angeles Lakers.

This is all very unofficial and it's true that a loss by an NBA franchise to a European club is no longer a rare entity, but somehow I feel both teams will be highly motivated to win this game and the truth is that Barcelona has many reasons to believe in what would be an astounding upset for most casual observers.

The Barcelona roster is practically unchanged from their brilliant 2009-2010 campaign. Only Kosta Perovic from Valencia has been added to shore up the inside defence against opposing giants and most of the players are already in mid-season form after playing in the FIBA World Championship.

Barcelona beat Valencia in the Spanish Super Cup competition recently with Juan Carlos Navarro being named MVP and rest assured that he will want to perform well against his best friend Pau Gasol and the Lakers to prove that he could have been an NBA star.

The Lakers on the other hand are just coming out of off season hibernation and Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum are nursing themselves back into shape after surgery. Knowing Kobe's competitiveness, Phil Jackson might be afraid to put him on the court and risk a setback.

In general, NBA teams don't take pre-season results very seriously and use these occasions to give starters a short run and borderline players a shot at proving their worth for the final roster spots but the Lakers don't want to be the brunt of any jokes either so they will bring whatever they can of their A-game to Barcelona despite the lack of preparation.

If we really wanted to settle the worldwide club supremacy question, it would be ideal to play a game like this during an extended All-star break in February when teams are running on all cylinders!

These exhibition games are played with a mixture of NBA and international rules so this aspect of the match-up should not be too important and I have felt over the years that this rule mixture could serve as a basis for uniformisation of rules everywhere which we all know is sorely needed.

Generally, NBA teams are able to wear down their European opponents with their strong benches despite a lack of competition, but Barcelona is deep and can match up size-wise with the Lakers. In fact the Barcelona roster is filled with players like Fran Vasquez who could be in the NBA right now but preferred to play in Europe.

The home fans in Barcelona only care about one thing – a prestigious, shot-heard-round-the-world type victory and the local players will be fuelled by their enthusiasm.

For some strange reason, I get the impression that the Lakers will have more trouble in Barcelona than the lowly New York Knicks will have in Milan where world supremacy won't be the issue but rebuilding towards past glory will be!

Let me end this article on another subject, the FIBA World Championship for women. OK, if high-flying dunks and acrobatics are what you are looking for this is not necessarily for you. But if you appreciate emotional, intense, cerebral and team-oriented basketball where solidarity and tactical intelligence are priorities, please tune in!

FIBA and UNECE launch Road Safety Campaign
to coincide with the 2010 FIBA World Championship

The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and have launched a new information campaign on road safety to coincide with the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

The campaign carries the motto “We play and drive by the rules” and has been developed to inform people around the world – especially the young people who are basketball fans or play basketball themselves – and to encourage respect for the rules, on the road as well as on the court.

Every year some 1.3 million people die as a result of road traffic crashes worldwide – amounting to more than 3,500 deaths each day. More than half of the casualties are pedestrians, cyclists or other road users not traveling in a car.

Please, Refresh the Page if You Can't watch the Preview and the Videos !

Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death for children and young people aged between five and 29. In addition, on average 20 to 50 million people sustain non-fatal injuries from road traffic crashes each year. These injuries are a significant cause of disabilities worldwide.

Experience shows that these are not accidents, but events that can be prevented through daily action and awareness raising. There is ample evidence in many countries in the world that respecting basic road safety rules dramatically reduces the risk of suffering a crash and, should a crash happen, dramatically reduces its adverse consequences.

The “We play and drive by the rules” campaign is organised with the support of the Turkish Basketball Federation (TBF) which is hosting the championship, the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB) and the Turkish National Police (TNP), which is in charge of road safety enforcement in the host country.

The campaign includes video clips with José Calderón, a world champion with the Spanish National Team in 2006, Kerem Tunçeri of Turkey’s National Team and Turkish legend Harun Erdenay.

These clips are being broadcasted in the arenas during the games and on the television channels broadcasting the games.

Information booths are also displayed in the arenas in the four cities hosting the games: Ankara, Istanbul, Izmir and Kayseri.

A Declaration for road safety, signed by officials of UNECE, FIBA, TBF and TNP, is displayed in the arenas to invite the players of the various teams to join the campaign and declare: “We play and drive by the rules”.

Ján Kubi, UNECE Executive Secretary, said: “The need for action to improve global road safety has been acknowledged by several resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly and by the First Ministerial Conference on Road Safety held in November 2009 in Moscow. We hope that this joint campaign at the FIBA Basketball World Championship 2010 will contribute to spread the road safety message across the world and help save lives”.

Patrick Baumann, FIBA Secretary General, said: “The basketball family has already lost a lot of its members on the road – famous stars as well as amateur players who travel by road every other week to play with their team. This is a needless, shocking and tragic loss of life which needs to be tackled urgently. With this campaign, FIBA hopes to hammer home the message that we want everybody, both in and out of the sport of basketball, to play and drive by the rules.”
