The arena in Melbourne wasn’t exactly dialed in to the professional basketball experience, and several people had to sit on terrible plastic chairs with awful views.
Meanwhile, the layout of the court was such that even famous folks who paid for top dollar, close-in seats were not able to see the game they paid for.
One of those people was Australian actor Russell Crowe, who said he paid $1,500 for a courtside seat which did not allow him a good view of the game.
Crowe was so upset about the quality of his seats that he took to going on a mini Twitter rant about the experience.
It was probably a bummer that Team USA added insult to Crowe’s injury, with the Americans beating Australia on Wednesday, 102-86.
The 2019 FIBA World Cup is coming up in China, and perhaps they will have a better look into things for Crowe if he decides to attend.
