Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving was named today to the USA Men’s Select Team which will help train the Men’s Olympic Team-
“Former Blue Devil and reigning NBA Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving was one of 13 players chosen to the USA Men’s Select Team that will train against the 2012 USA Basketball Men’s National Team, coached by Mike Krzyzewski, during its July 6-12 training camp in Las Vegas, Nev., USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo announced on Monday.”
It is possible that Kyrie could still be added to the National Team’s roster, especially with the injuries that have happened to stars such as Derek Rose.
Even if he isn’t added to the Olympic roster, the experience this summer should be very valuable for the young point guard.
