By week's end, we will finally have some real NBA action to speak of.
Training camp for teams competing in the overseas preseason games begins on Sept. 29. The rest of the NBA kicks off camp a week later. No matter how you slice it, basketball is right around the corner.
Prying eyes will soon want to know what their team is working on. In the weeks leading up to the season opener, every team will be doing heavy conditioning, building its rotation and ironing out offensive and defensive sets.
In every camp there is going to be an item that is placed on a higher plane than the rest of the work. Each franchise has a priority improvement it needs to reach in order to succeed in the 2012-13 season.
