Tim Grgurich is running his annual NBA camp for players and coaches this week in Las Vegas. Think of it as the modern day Pete Newell camp. According to David Aldridge:
Gurg camp is the best basketball camp you'll never be invited to... but Rule No. 1 of Gurg Camp: You do not talk about Gurg Camp.
NBA.com's Steve Aschburner takes it a step further:
It might be the only gym in America that has an impenetrable door with a little slot at eye level, through which eager customers must offer up the right password before that door will swing open. OK, not exactly. But it is a relative secret in a league with few. For most fans and even many alleged veteran observers, Grgurich's camp -- being held this week on the courts of a Vegas high school -- is so below the radar that it requires sonar. Part Xs & Os, part "Skull & Bones."
Festus Ezeli is suddenly back in Las Vegas this week as well. Coincidence? More likely he is at the foot of Gurg like so many other young players. But Festus is smart enough not to break rule no. 1 and talk about it.

Here is another article on Gurg camp from NBA.com's Steve Aschburner from a few years back.
Most Warrior fans probably want Festus to work on his low post offense. But a higher priority for me is that he gets help on defensive rebounding. He hasn't really dominated this part of the game even in his great junior year at Vanderbilt. Festus is strong as a bull, so I this is more about technique and he is so new to the game. But Festus won't beat out Biedrins until he consistently gets defensive boards. I think we all want this to happen as soon as possible.
