The start of training camp is just about three weeks away, and around the NBA,

players are ramping up their individual and group workouts so they will report to camp in tip-top shape.

Ever since LeBron James joined the Los Angeles Lakers, he has held a minicamp for players

only prior to the official start of training camp. By all indications, he intends to hold another one very soon.

Unless Russell Westbrook gets traded very soon, he is expected to be a participant in that camp.

“The Lakers’ LeBron James typically hosts a players-only minicamp somewhere

on the West Coast before training camp starts, so stay tuned.

Word is that another Lakers minicamp is likely in coming days 

and that Russell Westbrook would indeed attend if it comes together.
