Jeremy Lin Picked to Join USA Select Team

Jeremy Lin's season-ending knee surgery put to rest quite a remarkable year for the New York Knicks point guard. He missed the opportunity for playoff action, but can look forward to summer workouts now that their season is over.

But he'll be around other NBA stars during the off-season, because the Harvard grad has been named to the USA Select Team, which is a group of players who work out and compete against the Men's National team who will be participating in this year's Summer Olympics.

Some of the other young talented athletes to join Lin on the squad is this year's Rookie of the Year, Kyrie Irving, the Wizards' John Wall, and Taj Gibson of the Chicago Bulls, just to name a few.

The coaching staff of the Men's Basketball Team will observe those on the Select Team for consideration in future Olympic games.
