    Just gotta remember to hold your breath when you dive out of bounds to get the ball.

    They can put the court either on the deck or below deck....its not like an aircraft carrier moves in waves like your fishing boat does.

    and the title needs carrier in there.

    I had an opportunity to go aboard one of these things. You can look at pictures all day long and say "that thing is big", but you have no idea just how big it is until you get up close and personal with it. A basketball court is 94' x 50'. An aircraft carrier deck is 1,092' long by 252' wide.

    If you time it right, you can jump up to 12 feet just like being on the moon.

    This opens up other possibilities.

    Play at top of mt Evans forhighest game.

    Play at the real Death Valley for lowest elevation game.

    Play at Alcatraz for the memories.

    Play on a Great Lakes barge.

    Play on the border of two states. You can be in nebraska, our half is in Wyoming.

    Play a game at night with just night vision goggles.

    Hey, there a lot of gimmicks out there that can be done for the advertising dollar. This aircraft carrier one is good and above comment because it is on Vet's Day, but surely Nike will extend this to other firsts like playing at the South Pole.

    First of all, Wyoming and Nebraska? Why not play it somewhere where they've heard of the sport?

    Secondly, do it at the 4 corners. Both teams in different states, and fans in 4.
