Basketball fans have been left absolutely fuming after expensive tickets to the historic Australia-USA match turned out to be a massive letdown.

The raised court at Marvel Stadium meant that fans with the ground-level seats could barely see a thing, and on top of that, the $1000+ price tag could only get them an underwhelming white, plastic chair.

Russell Crowe tweeted a video from his $1500 court-side seats stating he would’ve been better off staying at home.

Australia lost the first match 102-86. The second game is on Saturday afternoon.
