I particularly liked this quote: The overhauled roster starts training camp Tuesday, but the getting-to-know-you period started right after Labor Day. Many of the players have been in Oakland, participating in pickup games since then and, maybe more importantly, hanging out before and after workouts. "When there are this many new guys, this is something that had to be done," said new head coach Keith Smart, who is replacing Don Nelson. "It's been great. You hear about these kinds of things happening in Miami and in New York, but I've never seen it happen here in my eight years." I like what's happening here. A lot.
