Report: Jeremy Lin May Appear In All-Star Shooting Stars Competition

Jeremy Lin emerged just a little too late this season to be considered for inclusion at this month's All-Star Game, but fear not -- there's still a chance for the New York Knicks phenom to play a role in the Orlando festivities.

According to a Sporting News report, the NBA is looking to include Lin in the Haier Shooting Stars competition on Saturday night. The event features one current NBA player, one WNBA player and one retired star from each competing city, and the league is looking to get New York a team this year, starring Lin.

The Shooting Stars game appears to be the only way to make room for Lin. He wasn't selected as an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve, he wasn't named one of the 3-point shooters tonight, and commissioner David Stern has already denied him a spot in the Rising Stars game. And... the dunk contest? Let's get real.

Lin has emerged as a dominant force overnight as the Knicks' point guard, leading them to victories in all six games he's started to date. He's averaging 24.3 points, 9.5 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game in those starts.
