AC Green acquires the rights to a 3BA franchise for Portland

    AC Green, author, speaker and successful businessman announced today he has acquired the rights to the Portland 3BA franchise team.  Green, a 3-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers and reigning “NBA Ironman” held a press conference at the Hotel Deluxe in Portland on June 29.

    3BA basketball is a high-powered professional sporting event and a true entertainment experience for all fans. The concept requires superior athleticism and showcases the most dynamic aspects of basketball.

    The game is a full court professional level 3 on 3 game that is challenging for players and highly entertaining for fans. Rules of the game place significant emphasis on speed, stamina and fundamental skills!

    Green is considering partners and has confirmed the 3BA game in Portland is now a reality.

    “This is an exciting time for basketball in the state of Oregon. The opportunity to provide an innovative, low cost, high entertainment event for families is exciting,” said Green.

    Since leaving the NBA, AC started the AC Green Youth Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to help young people build self-esteem, character, and learn moral and ethical principles that will help them make responsible life decisions.

    Green became involved with 3BA International in 2008 after hearing of the new game from Lamar Hurd, a fellow Oregon State alum. Hurd believed the mission of 3BA and the AC Green youth foundation held common ground and could be strong partners for introducing the new game furthering the objectives of both organizations missions.
