    They do, but that stadium sure didn't look temporary.

    At least the 3x3 can be played in a large convention center- since they commonly play mid-season tournaments in one for the NCAA.

Unless it's played outdoors- which it should be. Heck, watching some of the fluff pieces, Tokyo has a brand new field hockey stadium- what are they going to do what that?? It's huge, and nobody will ever be able to watch a match. Not that I'm suggesting to get rid of field hockey- but adding MORE events that need it's own, unique stadium seems pretty dumb.

    Can we get Tug-of-War back as a sport? Croquet? Motor boating?



    Also, the athletes have been having fun testing the cardboard beds... https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMdWdmm4q/

    Unwatchable because of commentary, as always.

    Where do they get these morons? Just talk about the sport and the event.

    Not a big fan of adding more and more judged sports....

    But the odd one 3x3 basketball. How in the world did pick up basketball make it as a Olympic sport???? This is NOT basketball- this is a small, half court, game, played like the racket games- with rounds.

    US didn't even qualify on the men's side, they got upset in qualifiers. The team was Robbie Hummel (currently a broadcaster), Dominique Jones (playing in China), Joey King (looks like he last played 5x5 in 2017 in Finland and has been doing 3x3 tournaments since), and Kareem Maddox (on and off between radio/podcast production and playing in Europe).

    I would love to see a super team of LeBron, Steph, Kawhi, and Durant out there.

    I recognized both FF songs, Song of the Ancients from Nier, and the Sonic song.
