by putting his into the thomas cup.. it will encourage him to train harder ... it also will improved his game as he had the opportunity sparring with lee chong wei

Maybe a common selection trial among the prospects just before major events like the TU based purely on merit is the way to go.

Too much, too soon. How about ZZ wins one or two GP Golds first before insisting that he be in the Thomas Cup squad? Or spar against all the BAM singles players in their stable in a selection process? And make it public. If he wins, great. If not, he'll come back down to Earth soon enough.

Selection, periodization and zz
Titles and past records count for nothing if the player is unable to perform at his peak during the current event/tournament. So ZZ's WJC title is only a record. He has to perform at the senior level.
But to expect a player to perform at his peak at all tournaments is unrealistic since his preparation schedule may have specific targets stretched over a period of time. Periodization is an action plan to enable the player to train for major tournaments and for him to perhaps warm up for minor competitions, with the necessary "winding down" rest and relaxation time in between to allow him to achieve peak condition at the targetted tournament. This could cover several months.
While BAM's national players may not be able to produce their best results during the many competitions now available under BWF sanctioned tournaments such as the SS and GP events, their training schedule may be targetted at different competitions, the LOG 2012 being the most important for those who qualified or trying to qualify.
So in a sense, to see LCW continuing to play so well especially when LD is not around, is quite remarkable but I think his main goal is to be the Olympic champion - perhaps his last chance to do so.
In badminton team events like the Thomas Cup, Uber Cup, Sudirman Cup, Commonwealth Games and SEA Games, more players are involved unlike the Olympics when personal glory is omnipotent. By its very nature, in team events team spirit is important to gel the players to perform better. Naturally, players who have been training under BAM would have formed a closer bond than those outside of BAM like KLRC. In fact BAM and KLRC are generally regarded as competitors as painted by the press.
So how do you fit in ZZ, who is playing under KLRC, for a team event like the Thomas Cup when he is taken as a rival by BAM's MS players? Worse still, ZZ is considered at best a junior player when some of the senior players under BAM are also competing to represent MAS?
To prepare for a major assignment like the TC, players must come together to train for perhaps several weeks, possibly culminating in a training camp towards the end. This is not only to perfect their technical, physical and mental abilities but also to inculcate the team spirit of "one for all and all for one".
So I think the more the parties concerned, including the press, wanting to pressure or dominate the proceedings currently fought out in the open, the less likely will ZZ be taken under BAM for induction into the TC team to win accolades for MAS. ZZ becomes the unavoidable point of contention rejected on account of political difference of those wanting to demonstrate who has the greater power.
I was thinking a democratic selection trial could solve the problem of representation, but the power of politics seems so dominant as to hijack all possibilities. Not if ZZ finally decided to join the BAM fold.
