An Olympic What-If

If things were just a bit different, Duke could theoretically have players on four or five Olympic teams. Here's how.

First, Luol Deng plays for the Brits (and they qualify).

Second, this would assume Crawford Palmer is still on the French roster (we don't know if he is or not).

Then Trajan Langdon, who holds Russian citizenship, would have to be on their team (he's not but is eligible), Nick Horvath, who took out citizenship in New Zealand, would have to be on their team, and Greg Newton would be on the Canadian team as well.

And of course all their teams would have to qualify.

It's a pipe dream, but it's fun to speculate.
