Video: Get a first look at 2012 Olympics basketball court

London Olympics basketball

The 2012 Olympic basketball tournament will be played in a temporary but cool looking building in London (pictured to the right). One well-protected building.

Perks of being the host is that the team from Great Britain gets its team in (they never would have qualified out of a brutal European competition) and the get to practice on the home court.

This video, via the London Telegraph (via the Crossover Chronicles), is a bit of a look at the British team (coached by American Chris Finch) but it also lets you get a look inside the venue that one year from now we will all be watching closely. Check it out.

    I love the city of London but as an Olympic venue it leaves a lot to be desired. They couldn’t be bothered to put up a permanent facility?
