Not everyone on Team USA was thrilled with the super swanky floating hotel the squad stayed on in Rio ... DeMar DeRozan says he HATED the digs ... and would've rather shacked up in the Olympic village.
In case you forgot ... Team USA basketball stayed on board a RIDICULOUS cruise ship called the Silver Cloud in Brazil ... which featured a pool, gym, cigar lounge AND bar.
We got the newly crowned gold medalist out in L.A. and asked him a question normies all over the world want the answer to ... what was it like to live in that incredible floating mansion on the sea?
Check out the clip -- DeMar gives a typical rich guy answer ... claiming -- for good reason -- that the posh accommodations weren't all they were cracked up to be.
Uh huh ... we'll take your word for it, bro.
