How to watch Rui Hachimura at the Tokyo Olympics

Getting to compete in the Olympics is a dream in itself, but competing while your country plays host is a dream Wizards power forward Rui Hachimura is getting to fulfill at the Tokyo Games. 

As the star man with Japan, Hachimura will go up against the world's top international players. Hachimura became the highest drafted player ever to come out of Japan, and just the second ever Japanese draftee, when the Wizards drafted him out of Gonzaga with the No. 9 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. 

Born about five hours away from Tokyo, Hachimura will surely have the home crowd rooting for him coming up against the likes of former Lakers champion Pau Gasol of Spain and Mavs star Luka Doncic of Slovenia. But with the Japanese capital a whole 13 hours ahead of the nation's capital, Hachimura fans across the pond will have to become early risers to see him in action, with each game streaming live on the NBC Olympics Site.

Here's how to catch Hachimura in action at the Tokyo Olympics.
