Chinese Basketball Association star Jeremy Lin could line-up for his father’s home country of Taiwan at a future Olympics after he officially obtained a Taiwanese passport on Wednesday. The Taiwan News website reported that Lin was accompanied by his father and Taipei City councillor Chung Hsiao-ping as he attended the Ministry of Interior in Taipei City to finalise the process. The 31-year-old it still ineligible to represent Taiwan in FIBA -sanctioned events, such as the World Cup , as FIBA has stricter nationality requirements, although he could wear the white of Taiwan at the next Asian Games in Hangzhou in 2022. FIBA rules require dual citizens to acquire a passport of a country he hopes to represent before turning 16 in order to be eligible. “He is very willing to represent Taiwan in international games,” Chung said after the formalities were completed. He also provided a photo of the former Toronto Raptor’s new passport. Lin, who is currently taking a break after a testing CBA campaign with the Beijing Ducks, is yet to officially decide if he will remain in Asia for the coming season or if he will attempt to jump-start his career back in the US. Jeremy Lin says Chinese players as good as those in NBA California-born Lin enjoyed a good first season in China with the Ducks where he finished the campaign with an average of 22.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists. His Beijing side was eliminated by the eventual championship winners, Guangdong Southern Tigers, at the semi-final stage of the play-offs following a bruising series, which saw the NBA champion taken to hospital after its conclusion.
