    Why is basketball an Olympic sport?

    Honestly, I can't really see Basketball fitting in with the rest of the Olympics. I mean, the Us is the only country that takes it serious enough out of the Olympics. And be serious, I don't want anybody coming at me bout you saw the commercial with the little Thai boy going LeBron. Personally, the sport is alright with me, I think its kinda fun, and their shoes are awesome.... *Cough* LeBrons and Foams *Cough* But I don't really think it fits in at the Olympics. Anyone else agree?

    America is probably the only country that takes it seriously, but I believe due to the Dream Team, basketball has been popular in many European countries since the 90's.

    Re: Why is basketball an Olympic sport?

    You kidding? Tons of countries take it seriously. Spain and the lot. The difference is in the level of talent. (Spoiler, U.S. has way more.)

    It fits in at the Olympics just as well as everything else. Baseball should come back as well.

    Re: Why is basketball an Olympic sport?

    It's a famous sport so why not.
    I have seen ridiculous sports in the Olympics, so why not basketball?

    Your 13 ~_~

    Read the history of Olympic basketball. It's not just the US. Basketball nowadays and back in the day is extremely popular Europe and South America.

    Re: Why is basketball an Olympic sport?

    Yeah basketball is rapidly growing all over the world, especially Asia. Kryie Irving is an Austriallian citizen and one of the best prospects in the NBA. Every country takes it serious in the Olympics, it's just America has the best players by far
