Some of the early basketball games were played outdoors including early on Olympic games. 1936 Berlin for one.
As far as football I think two things enter into use of indoor/outdoor stadiums. One: Weather. for example Arizona where it would be hard to play in very high temperatures and places like Minnesota where late season games are played on frozen fields in sub zero weather, although for instance in Green Bay the field is actually heated by hot water piping. Two: playing on grass in an outdoor stadium is preferred by the players. Now a neat trick in Glendale where the Cardinals play. The field is grass used in an indoor stadium but the field is portable and on tracks and is put into the stadium before each game.

While this country's stadium infrastructure is far and away superior to every other country, one thing other countries (namely those in Europe) do well with their stadiums is roof coverings. A lot of soccer stadiums in England for example, have partial roofs that cover most, if not all of the seats while still maintaining an open air stadium. Look at what Miami did recently as a an example in this country. It keeps fans dry during rain storms and cuts back on the amount of snow that could fall inside the stadium.

LA's new stadium seems to bring the best of both worlds and could be a model for future stadium. It's going to be open air but have a canopy with a clear roof. I think this stadium will end up being a masterpiece.

despite hundreds of letters sent to the designers of the new Vikings Crystal Palace, my recommendation to save money, embrace the elements and provide little dome hats to the spectators went unheeded.

At an estimated three billion dollars it better be.

Maybe sense you seem to live in the LA area you could suggest that the new stadium owners should issue hard hats in case of an earthquake.

Outdoor for me...

Mud, snow, wind & rain.. it's an integral part of the game. And fun to watch.
But I get why Detroit & Minnesota moved inside..
peace
