It seems that some countries (or, rather, some countries' specific teams, aka USA Basketball) will be staying in the lap of luxury while other nations' teams have to struggle and sweat through faulty plumbing, broken light fixtures, and disgusting conditions in the Olympic Village.

However, fear not Team USA fans! There will be no such nonsense for Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, and the rest of the Americans. Instead of roughing it in the Village, they'll be staying on a luxury cruise ship docked just off the coast.
