The arrival of NBA training camps brings the usual training camp stories. Coaches offer familiar bromides about "pushing the tempo" or "a renewed commitment to defense." Those plans usually blow up by November when a coach realizes he does not have the personnel. If he did, his team would have displayed those traits the previous season. I never buy into these stories. A third popular training camp meme is when we are told "donít read too much into player combinations" during training camp/preseason to divine who might be a starter. As fantasy players, we are interested in unsettled starting jobs. We want to know which player will emerge from the competition. The position battles in training camp are where sleepers come from. While I look askance at plans to push tempo or play lock-down defense, Iím on board with not making rash judgments based on early lineup configurations.
