Jeremy Lin named to Team USA….kind of

When the NBA season comes to an end, the olympic training will begin. Among those who will help train the London 2012 team will be Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks. Lin was named to the USA Select team, a group of players that the main team will practice against. If the injury bug bites the main roster, then these players have a chance of moving to the big squad.



Now many of you may be saying to yourselves “hey, why doesn’t Lin just join team China, his lineage should enable him to do so.” Theoretically Lin could play for team China, except there is one huge problem. China does not allow dual citizenship, therefore Lin would have to denounce himself as an American. Not gonna happen, the only chance we see Lin is if USA loses a plethora of point guards to injury.
