LA could probably host the Olympics with about 12 weeks notice. They’ve got every every facility they’d need either already purpose-built or easily converted (they probably don’t have a permanent team handball court, but a surplus of basketball courts that can be converted), an overabundance of hotel rooms, and more than a few colleges whose dorms could be converted to athlete housing if you didn’t want to scratch-build a new Olympic Village.

Of all the cities in the world that could most easily absorb the Olympics and not blink, it’s LA.
