In Profile, Johnson, King and Horner Star; Thinking Better Lying Down?

Jonathan Abrams, late of the New York Times and now of Grantland.com, spent last week in Nets training camp, where he was given pretty much open access. His 5,000-word article lays out how the Nets, coaching staff, front office and players deal with the pressure of a truncated training camp.

As one would expect, much of the focus is on how Avery Johnson is preparing the team, along with his assistants. But Abrams also deals with how Dennis Horner is dealing with his first NBA training camp and the relationship between Billy King and Deron Williams, noting the two spend almost every lunch together. King tells Abrams he makes most of his deals while lying on his couch (must be a big one) because you think better in the prone position.
