When a basketball game is played in a stadium usually reserved for sports played on large fields, spectators' views can be less than ideal.

Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe wasn't thrilled with his premium seating for Team USA's pre-FIBA World Cup friendly against Australia in Melbourne on Thursday, tweeting out his displeasure.

The exhibition contest was played in the 53,000-seat Marvel Stadium - built primarily for the large, oblong field of Australian rules football - and necessitated placing seats on the stadium floor. But unlike when the NCAA utilizes football facilities in the U.S., there appeared to be no grading to the seating around from the court.

Instead, it featured what appeared to be patio chairs.

The two squads play again in the same stadium on Saturday. Bring a periscope.
