THE MEN’S USA OLYMPIC BASKETBALL TEAM WILL REPORTEDLY BE STAYING ON A LUXURY CRUISE SHIP WHILE IN RIO FOR THE GAMES

While Andrew Bogut and other Olympians deal with the alleged subpar living conditions of the Olympic Village in Rio, the United States basketball team will be chilling on a luxury cruise ship.
According to Shekhar Bhatia and Louise Cheer of the Daily Mail, Team USA will be staying on a boat docked in the Port of Rio. 
The boat will feature beds that are long enough to allow the athletes to sleep comfortably, rather than hotel beds that may cause the taller players to dangle over the edge. And that’s just the beginning of it. There will be chefs, a pool, a library and more.
In other words, this will be closer to the 5-star hotels they are used to staying at than the Olympic Village would be.
Team USA is already expected to win the gold medal. Given the players have a quality place to stay, the team should be more than ready to go when it comes time to hit the hardwood.
