Thorn Part of Remaking Team USA Too.

As if remaking the Nets wasn't enough, Rod Thorn is also spending part of his summer trying to get the US Olympic basketball program back on top.
Thorn is a key member of Jerry Colangelo's advisory panel on making sure that the 2008 Beijing Olympics isn't a replay of what happened in Athens last summer. And Thorn, like the Suns former owner, is taking a hard line on who should and shouldn't be wearing the red, white and blue. Thorn knows about the Olympics: four Nets have Olympic medals.
