If the Utah Jazz's projected starting five (pictured above) had decided to take a trip together before training camp, not one of them would have been old enough to rent a car after their flight touched down.
And yet, these are the men tasked with leading the Utah Jazz—an organization that Forbes estimated to be worth over $400 million, with a rabid fan base that's seen the team make 25 out of the last 30 NBA postseasons.
That's a lot of pressure to put on a handful of 20-somethings, but maybe they're too young to care about that weight. And maybe that's a good thing.
Through photo shoots, two-a-day practice sessions packed with conditioning and an open scrimmage in EnergySolutions Arena, evidence of nerves brought on by the pressure is nonexistent. What has been on display is a young core brimming with talent, having fun and playing hard.
That's the general vibe Utah's training camp has produced. As for specifics, the things we've learned so far will likely be ongoing stories throughout the season.
