The NBA has added Knicks breakout star Jeremy Lin to the Rising Stars Challenge at All-Star weekend. This was a no-brainer, but until today, it looked like the league was doing the unthinkable and leaving Lin on the shelf. Earlier today they announced Lin would participate in the WNBA crossover event and throw lobs to Iman Shumpert. Norris Cole was also added to the participant pool to keep the teams even.
