Thunder should reap rewards of this summer
Getting a group of NBA players to gather on one spot during the offseason frequently is a futile quest. The Oklahoma City Thunder did it three times in the lockout summer of 2011, an achievement that has veteran center Nazr Mohammed still shaking his head.
The Thunder held voluntary camps at the University of Texas in Austin,the University of Kentucky in Lexington and at Southern Nazarene in Bethany. Mohammed said those four-day sessions meant something at the time and could mean even more with an abbreviated regular season about to start.
The condensed training camp no doubt will hurt several teams, but not the Thunder, which has only two new faces on its roster in rookie Reggie Jackson and second-year forward Lazar Hayward, plus camp signee Ryan Reid. However, Mohammed said there are still subtleties and intricacies that must be ironed out.
