Anybody watching the pro campers this year understands how vital such instruction is for most of today's NBA players, who are physical wonders but are novices when it comes to the nuances of fundamental hoop technique and strategy.

The reverse pivots, proper square-ups, stagger fakes and step-through moves clearly have been revelations to the majority of players this week.

When the Bulls' Eddy Curry and Tyson Chandler warmed up with a two-on-two game against the Kings' Bobby Simmons and Wizards' Kwame Brown, they did nothing but launch 3s and throw lobs to the rim.
Hmmmm. Not good. Not good at all...

And in a nod to BullsNews.com:
Biggest Big Man Camp surprise: Pistons swingman Tayshaun Prince. Matched against Warriors guard Jason Richardson in one-on-one drills, Prince shook JRich several times and stayed in front of him defensively. Richardson had his moments, too, recovering from one Prince juke for a ooohhh-inspiring block at the rim, but Prince was clearly the early talk of camp.

Key words there, warming up. Did he mention how they did in the real drills?
