Day two of training camp here in Boise. At this morning's practice, Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer were there mainly to stretch and do other exercises, but not to practice. Jerry Sloan has limited his star duo, as well as Andrei Kirilenko, to just one practice session a day. Sloan doesn't want the three to get burned out because they played a lot of basketball over the summer getting to Beijing. But this isn't new for Sloan. He had to deal with the same thing with John Stockton and Karl Malone when they played in the Olympics.
I spoke with Kyle Korver today about the battle at shooting guard. He's excited to battle with Ronnie Brewer, C.J. Miles, and second year player Morris Almond. Korver told me part of his summer was spent healing from surgery. He had bone spurs removed from his foot and says he feels great heading into the season. Korver also works with Jeff Hornacek now and then. Korver said Jeff is "old, but he's not that old! He's an older guy but we all watched him play." Korver added he loves to pick Hornacek's brain because he was such a terrific shooter. You know, in the olden days!
