The main point of the report, if you use Google translate you'd see this, is that it concluded that it would be very difficult for Lin to play for Team China, since he'd have to renounce his U.S. citizenship.

Then U.S. media picks it up and it becomes "China wants Lin to renounce US citizenship". Not that unusual to be honest.
Basically people are up in arms about nothing.... sad really
