We here at Roflympics have done our best to provide fair coverage of the most exciting Olympics news, shenanigans, memes and happenings. You may have noticed that we haven't touched on covering Olympic Basketball. This is frankly because the Olympics aren't as fun when you play in god mode.
The above article explains (with some salty not-for-work language) why watching a team completely and utterly DOMINATE a sport just isn't fun. The United States is large (in population and physical size) and has quite the legacy of sport, not to mention the largest number of athletes competing in the Olympics this year. Of course Team USA is going to win things. But when people take bets on not just who will win the match, but by how many dozens of points? There's just not a lot of competition in that.
Besides, we'd way rather cover adorable high jumpers, friends breaking records, a country's first gold in 40 years, and the love of a parent for their child. That stuff is way more interesting than a single country winning everything. That is why WE watch the Olympics.
