The current state of play with 3X3 in Australia

With CLB3X3 having taken the lead in the Australian 3X3 space two years ago, the 3X3 Hustle's arrival on the scene is good news for Australia’s Olympic aspirations, as more events means more opportunities for participation, more exposure for the sport, and of course more FIBA 3X3 world ranking points.

NBL CCO Andy Crook, CLB3X3 GM Matt Hollard and BA GM Paul Maley all interviewed for this article on 3X3 basketball moving forward.

Some interesting Sunday reading.

3X3 Hustle is exactly the same. It's not new or innovative. Doesn’t mean I think it’s bad, just don’t agree that it’s new. It would be great to see it all succeed though.

It's simple. LK wants to destroy Matt Hollard. Has never forgiven him for announcing the Champions League concept in the same week that he announced he was taking over the NBL. Has a very long memory does LK.

Nothing wrong with some competition between competitions. That is good for everyone so let them go at it.

LK wants to destroy Matt Hollard.
It wouldn't surprise me, but I'd guess it's mostly about protecting his turf. He's got a lot invested in the NBL. If it's motivated him to push things further, that's good for all of us.

Hollard's timing when launching CLB was ridiculous. Fool has learnt the hard way.
