Here are some harsh words from CBSsportsline's Gregg Doyel to Chris Kaman:
Nor should Chris Kaman be welcome on the German basketball team. He's not from Munich -- he's from Michigan. His parents were born here. His grandparents were born here. Apparently, more than 100 years ago, his great-grandparents were born in Germany. So this makes him German? No. This makes him a sellout.
On Aug. 17, Kaman and his German team are set to play the Americans. God help you, Chris Kaman, if you do anything that day to beat America. Then again, you're only Chris Kaman. So never mind.

I can understand Chris being mocked for joining the German Olympic team, but I would not go as far as calling him a sellout. German basketball fans should be outraged that their country needed a ringer, but I'm not outraged at Chris.
