So .. it sounds like the rules definitely favor shot making, right?

If a shot outside the arc is 2PT and inside it is just 1PT, then shots outside the arc have an even greater scoring efficiency advantage (100%) than they do in regular basketball (50%).

So this would seem to favor good shooters from outside.

What about fouls?  How are fouls handled?  Is there just one FT shot on a shooting foul?

Id imagine there arent free throws.

In most larger 3 v 3 tourneys Ive played in, theyve always had no free throws untill a team uses up a certain number of fouls. The number is usually decently high and there just to prevent people from hacking a ton.

Kawhi
James
Durant

3 best players in the league all happen to be able to defend a ton of positions and Kawhi and KD can really shoot it.

This sounds like a really cool addition to the olympics! Do we know if this will be pro (NBA level) players or street ball legends of some sort? Maybe creating a whole new genre of pro basketball, 3 on 3 street ball style like beach volleyball?

Fultz
Kawhi
Cousins

 ;)

Swap Fultz for Lebron, and that's my team.

You can't play 3v3 without an athletic big man, and while Cousins may be an iffy choice for 5v5, him and Lebron are pretty much the perfect 3v3 players...and Kawhi and his defense is the perfect choice to complement that duo, imo.
"In Danny we trust" is so 2016.

true. Sounds good on paper but lebron has said he isn't good at 3v3. Also he's probably gonna be busy with the 5v5 team
