“We want to invite Asian powers”
ONE HOOP adds 2v2 and 1v1 games to the existing 3v3. 온라인카지노The two competing teams (5 players per team) will play 3-on-3, 2-on-2, and 1-on-1 before settling on a final score.
2v2 is a three-minute back-and-forth game. The starting team is determined by a jump ball from the free throw line. The team that concedes a point is the next to attack, but the team that induces a turnover (steal, blocked shot, airball, etc.) can attack immediately. The team with the defensive rebound must move the ball beyond the three-point line.
Players who accumulate a high number of personal fouls will be removed from the court. There are also team fouls per quarter. The starting team is determined by a coin toss, and the game is played on a winner stays basis. The first player to score six points stays on the court. It’s similar to the King of Fighters series, which is known for its classic one-on-one games.
The final game is 3-on-3, with a coin toss to determine the starting team. Four quarters of three minutes each. The rest is pretty much the same as the 2-on-2 rule.
That’s a lot of different types of basketball in one game. For that alone, the idea of ONE HOOP can be praised. The idea of ONE HOOP is praiseworthy.
Commissioner Jang Dae-seok said, “Originally, this space is not a basketball court. It’s a space for watching films. But when I saw this space, I thought it would be great to have a half-court tournament,” he said, starting with the reason for holding the event at the Myungfilm Art Centre.
“In athletics, you have 100m runners, 200m runners, and relay runners. Just as those athletes compete as a team, I thought it would be nice to have a half-court tournament with a variety of events,” he said, explaining how he came up with the idea for ONE HOOP.
He continued, “If you look at the Han River or street courts, there are many people playing 2-on-2 or 1-on-1. There are also many players who specialise in 3-on-3, 2-on-2, and 1-on-1. Each sport has its own characteristics. However, they all have one thing in common: they are dynamic,” he said, adding that they are different from other 3X3 competitions.
ONE HOOP also introduced a local rule to the tournament: the “Double Bump Variation” rule. If an attacker bumps into a defender more than twice with his back to the basket, the team loses the offence. The intention is to encourage face-ups, not post-ups.
Commissioner Jang Dae-seok said, “We thought a lot about the rules. The double bump variation is also a local rule that came out of a lot of thought. It’s not fun if big men only do back down moves. Big men can show various individual skills such as dribbling through the legs. The players are responding well,” he said, explaining the intention behind the local rule and the players’ reaction.
“First of all, we want to have a winter league this winter, and we’re also thinking about a league for women. We would also like to invite the Asian powers (Japan, China, Taiwan, Mongolia, etc.),” he added. That’s the future of ONE HOOP that Commissioner Jang Dae-seok dreams of.
