Team USA training camp is underway in Las Vegas and while he isn't headed to London for the Olympics, Klay Thompson is in Vegas training with the USA men's national team.
Thompson is one of 13 members of the USA select team. The select team is made up of mostly first, second and third year NBA players. They scrimmage the national team and help them prepare for the Olympics. Six members of the national team headed to London started on the select team.
The Golden State Warriors have been covering Thompson at USA basketball training camp and produced the following four videos.

Making the select team after just one NBA season is quite the accomplishment. And to think, roughly two years ago we were debating whether or not Klay deserved first-team Pac-10 honors.
