The Rio 2016 Olympics ended 10 days ago and, on the whole, they went off without any of the disasters or troubles that were speculated before the competition in Brazil began.

Australian stars Andrew Bogut and Matthew Dellavedova were vocal on social media about the conditions in the Olympic village when they first touched down in South America.

The Boomers missed out on a medal in the bronze match after they were beaten by a solitary point as Pau Gasol and his Spanish compatriots secured their place on the podium alongside Gold medal winners USA and Serbia, who claimed silver.

As he prepares for the new NBA season with the Dallas Mavericks - after the center ended his four-year spell with the Golden State Warriors that brought one championship ring - he took a swipe at the International Olympic Committee and Australian Olympic team chief Kitty Chiller.

Obviously moved by the divide in wealth he saw during his time in the Brazilian city, he shot down the IOC's claims about how they distributed their wealth.

He was involved in a funny press conference with Chiller during the games when he expressed surprised about the hotel she was staying in and asked if her toilet worked due to his being out of use in the village.

The chef de mission was in the news once again after an accreditation scandal saw nine athletes arrested after AOC volunteers helped them get into the basketball semi-final between the Aussies and Serbia.

As Chiller was in a press conference, the new Mavericks man took a sly dig at her on Twitter.
